As the biggest retailer in the world, Amazon.com is a popular source for product information. Unfortunately, Amazon does not offer Open Graph tags for easy scraping of product data. Using OpenGraph.io, it is now possible to get that information without having to write your own cumbersome web-scraping tool.
