If the facebook page is the only - or primary website, I would agree to
use it as website.
That is sometimes the case, and I agree, that this should be in OSM as
any website at a dedicated domain or whatever.
A facility that has it's own website, most likely linking to the other
ones, and uses platforms like facebook, twitter and much more for
communication or advertising means, I don't think it's valuable to add
all these to osm.
That leads to trillians of URLs in osm with hundrets of different tags,
and as a result neither the osm data consumer nor another mapper has an
idea about where to look to find crucial information about the facility
in the web.
