    Recently I heard about "og" open graph meta tags and searched in Google about it but could not get what exactly it is.
    Can any one tell exactly what this tag is about with an appropriate example and how it is beneficial in SEO or internet marketing?

    OG or Open Graph tags are used by Facebook. These tags don't help with SEO. Basically Facebook picks title and description from these tags to show on their Page.

    Open graph meta tags are used by Facebook, Google+ and even Google search engine for a better parsing of the page content. Open Graph meta tags are useful for when a user posts to his Facebook wall.
