Strange facebook warning of URL being unreachable

I use social plugin for Facebook comments. Nothing unusual initially. However after migrating to new hosting provider, I started to see the tiny Facebook warning under the comment box. It say something about the URL being unreachable.

I tried few things, to the extend that I change to another hosting provider for this sake (because I read somewhere that might be due to the server blocking robots from Facebook from fetching the content).

I never thought that it was due to the meta content that Facebook is looking for.

Just add og:title, og:image, og:type and og:url then the “unreachable” problem gone.

Hope this help those who are facing the same issue as this.

    OK never mind, I figured it out. My image file in the og:image was not large enough for Facebook 🙁
