Facebook has defined a set of common object types for use in your apps. Certain Built-in Object Types are designed to work with Built-in Action Types. However, you can also define Custom Action Types to act on any Built-in Object Type. In order to use Built-in Objects in your app, you will need to register them in the App Dashboard. The following Built-in Object Types are available:

The Open Graph Protocol enables you to integrate your Web pages into the social graph. It is currently designed for Web pages representing profiles of real-world things — things like movies, sports teams, celebrities, and restaurants. Including Open Graph tags on your Web page, makes your page equivalent to a Facebook Page. This means when a user clicks a Like button on your page, a connection is made between your page and the user. Your page will appear in the "Likes and Interests" section of the user's profile, and you have the ability to publish updates to the user. Your page will show up in the same places that Facebook pages show up around the site (e.g. search), and you can target ads to people who like your content. The structured data you provide via the Open Graph Protocol defines how your page will be represented on Facebook.
