I've googled this but can't find any answers...What is the criteria for certain sites to be blocked when inserting them into the status update box. For example:

I type http://match.com and it loads the open graph data. I type http://ihookup.com (our clients site) and it doesn't load anything. The site doesn't have open graph data but it should still pull from meta data and images on the site and show something. So my first thought is that FB is filtering out explicit sites.

But then pornstars and porn companies all have pages on FB so I'm not sure what it could be. Can anyone weigh in?
