If you can access other sites like Google, then check whether you are behind a proxy. You may use an online tool like this. If you are behind a proxy, then most probably that proxy is intercepting your requests and blocking access to facebook.

This could also be a DNS issue. Facebook is blocked by a number of countries, organizations, and employers. Needless to say, Fedora does not block access to Facebook or control your environment.
