If Facebook is "guilty" of anything, then Google is even guiltier.
Everything objected to about FB applies to both. FSF/E would
not condone GNU projects' participation in an "FBSoC", yet
GNU projects participate in GSoC. I believe that's the classic
definition of a double standard.
But the question is: should a free software INSTITUTION use FB?
The original question was that, but https://www.fsf.org/facebook
and other docs were also mentioned above, and contain plenty
of references to "me" the individual, as well as "us" the institution.
