When you paste a link into your Facebook status bar, you normally get a preview of the site.

When I paste my WordPress site in, I get WordPress > Error.

I thought it might be a theme-level issue, but even when I enable TwentyEleven, I get the same result.

Anyone run into this before?

Sure you tested with twentyeleven?

Try reuploading wp-admin and wp-includes

Your current theme code is messy with a missing <html> tag and other errors and that might be causing the strange link error: [Invalid] Markup Validation of andrewjamesobrien.com - W3C Markup Validator. Scroll down in the validation report to see line numbers and source code.
