Sharing on the Web using Structured Data

One of the first things a new netizen who decides to publish a new website, blog or develop a custom app will want to do is to figure out how to add sharing buttons. In this feature I will demonstrate how to do just that. Additionally, we will take it a step further by using Open Graph HTML meta tags to markup the page thus enabling our shared content to be more than simply boring text and links. Instead it will show up as media rich posts in the newsfeed or firehouse.
