"og:" in the meta content of a website's HTML refers to Open Graph, which is a protocol used by Facebook and other social media platforms to gather information about a webpage when it is shared. Open Graph meta tags provide metadata about the webpage, such as the title, description, and image, which social media platforms use to display rich previews when the webpage is shared.

This allows for a more visually appealing and informative presentation of the webpage's content on social media feeds. Open Graph meta tags are typically added to the section of a webpage's HTML and follow the format of "og:property" with a corresponding value. Some commonly used Open Graph meta tags include "og:title" for the webpage's title, "og:description" for a brief description of the content, and "og:image" for the URL of an image to display with the shared link.
