    If your homepage shows your latest blog posts, then the og:type is set to "blog" and cannot be changed. (I personally can't think of any reason why the og:type of the blog homepage would be set to something other than "blog", but if you have a case in which changing it would be useful, I'd like to hear about it.)

    If your homepage is a static frontpage, you can change the og:type by editing the page and then going to the "SEO Settings" box > "Social Network Listing" tab > "Open Graph Type" dropdown.

    Hi John, thanks for the answer.

    The reason is quite simple: on my home page i have the latest activity and links for the latest posts. When someone click on "like" (facebook) in my homepage, in other words, when someone "like" my site, not an article, he will see on facebook "John like's mysite in mysite". This doesn't makes sense. I wanna to show "John likes mysite" only.

    That's the reason to og:type be website on homepage.

    You gave an idea, i will create a new page and turn it in my static homepage.

    But, for reasons i have given, it would be nice having the option of changing the property for the homepage too.
