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

Questions:

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:

http://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alifewortheating.com%2Fparis%2Flambroisie-revisited

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

Thank you!

Answers:

for me helped removing meta-tag with property=”og:type“.
Earlier it was on my page:

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

As referring to this page (like btn section):
http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/canvas/

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.
