Open Graph Meta Tags


Learn how to use the og:locale meta tag to improve your site.

Defines the locale of the page content. This tag helps social media platforms and other services understand the language and regional settings to use when displaying or categorizing the shared content.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:locale" content="en_US" />
Specifies that the content is intended for English speakers in the United States.
<meta property="og:locale" content="fr_FR" />
Designates the content for French speakers in France.
<meta property="og:locale" content="en-GB" />
Incorrect use of the locale format. Correct format would be en_GB.
<meta property="og:locale" content="" />
Leaving the og:locale tag empty fails to provide social platforms guidance on the intended audience, potentially affecting content display and reach.


  • Use Correct Locale Format
    Follow the format of language_TERRITORY to correctly specify the locale. For example, en_US for English (United States).
  • Fallback Locale
    Define a fallback using the og:locale:alternate tag for content available in multiple languages to ensure the right version is shown to users.
