Facebook open graph meta tag: fb-admins

facebook-opengraphmeta-tags

I'm going over Facebook's Open Graph API. All of it seems simple and is explained well except for the fb:admins meta tag. What is this for?

For example:

<meta property="fb:admins" content="USER_ID"/>

Facebook says this: A comma-separated list of either Facebook user IDs or a Facebook Platform application ID that administers this page. It is valid to include both fb:admins and fb:app_id on your page. I'm just not sure what this is.

I guess it is the combination of the ids that is tripping me up.

Best Solution

If you any of the social plugins, fb will look at the fb:admins tag to determine access to admin features directly from your site. For example, if you use the comment box, and you have <meta property="fb:admins" content="USER_ID"/> with your fbid, while logged in, it'll give you access to moderate the comment box. At least, thats my understanding
