If you could add something to Kentico, what would it be and why?

Ability to customize facebook og and twitter card metadata within the existing Metadata section of the Properties tab

There is already a functioning area to hold and edit metadata information with good inheritance rules. Can the functionality be expanded to include metadata for common social networks such as facebook and twitter? This is a widely requested feature by clients and the Metadata section in the Properties tab seems like a natural fit.

    I too come across this request from customers often. These Social tags are so important now, there needs to be more support in Kentico.

    I can think of multiple options this can be implemented:
    1. add fields and values for the various tags (og:title, of:image, etc) on the Metadata section of a Page
    2. Expand the Page Type with a new section so on a Page Type level a developer can indicate which fields, hold the values for the tags, this way you can reuse the DocumentName for og:title, TeaserImage for og:image etc.)
    3. A combination of the two: Indicate on the PageType which fields are the defaults, but be able to override this on the Metadata tab.
