If you haven't changed any settings, then it is probably an FB issue.

Once I get your site's link I will look into in just in case something went wrong with the og: tags.

PS. Make sure the image size you choose for FB is at least 200px x 200px.
This setting is located in K2's parameters under the social tab.

The first set of the og: tags which is generated from K2 is working properly.
Another extension is generating these tags as well, and also twitter cards.
You need to locate this extension (possibly an SEO extension) and disable that functionality.

The white page was not caused by that extension.
You need to ask your hosting provider to disable the magic_quotes (the warning in your Joomla! backend).
Editing a file will most probably 'break' your site.

That is why you were seeing commented code in the frontend.

PS. The issue is resolved now

It is the magic quotes issue.
You need to contact your hosting provider about that.
Joomla! will not function properly with magic quotes on.

PS. DO NOT edit any template files in your Joomla! backend it will break your site.

Facebook caches URLs, although your code seems ok, it is very probable that Facebook has cached that URL.

So what could be the solution to this if facebook cached the pages?
