While I'm not a fan of Facebook either.
If you play devils advocate. they have done some good stuff. and already
notice some good changes to mapilary as well:
- they have done some amazing work with 'map with AI'
- all the mapillary data is from now free to use, even for commercial use :
"Moving forward, that will continue to be true, except that starting today,
it will also be free to use for commercial users as well"
- and "This next chapter of Mapillary’s journey is an opportunity to build
upon our OpenStreetMap efforts to a degree that was not possible earlier
on. Previous OpenStreetMap development had to be balanced against
development work for other mapping use cases. As part of Facebook, we can
focus on OpenStreetMap while supporting Facebook’s open mapping efforts."

So this (in theorie) could be a good thing
