Facebook “Like” produces “There was an internal error when updating the Page.”


I added a like button to my blog a few months ago and things have been working perfectly. Suddenly I added a new post this morning, and for whatever reason, the like button is now broken. Everytime I click "Like" I receive this error:

There was an internal error when updating the Page.

There is no additional information.

I used Facebook's LINT and the meta info comes through perfectly, only the same vague error appears:

<a href="http://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alifewortheating.com%2Fparis%2Flambroisie-revisited" rel="nofollow">http://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alifewortheating.com%2Fparis%2Flambroisie-revisited</a>

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone experienced this before?

Thank you!


for me helped removing <strong>meta</strong>-tag with property="<strong>og:type</strong>". Earlier it was on my page:


<meta property="og:type" content="product"/>


As referring to this page (like btn section): <a href="http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/canvas/" rel="nofollow">http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/canvas/</a>


If you’re interested in gaining distribution for content or giving users the ability to like a virtual good, you should not include the og:type tag. In this case, a stream story will still be published when your users like your content, but your URL will not be equivalent to a Facebook page. This means you will not have the ability to publish to users, and your pages will not show up on users' profiles.

If your canvas URL represents a real-world object (e.g. a cause, movie, product), add the appropriate og:type tag. In this case your canvas URL will be equivalent to a Facebook page. In addition to stream distribution, when a user likes your page you will have the ability to publish updates to them, and your URL will show up on users' profiles.



Facebook, last I checked, requires the og:admins <meta> property.
