Calm down.
Normally if these images get their license upgraded to this newer license,
normally it shouldn't be able to be reverted. But we'll see once they
publish the license.
(I don't really see a reason why Facebook would want to do that though tbh.
Having Mapillary contain as much data as possible benefits them.)
And yes, it's free. in exchange for nothing except a mention that it was
from Mapillary.
The whole 'problem' that facebook has, has nothing to do with this.
it's not because a website uses Mapillary data that they need to implement
cookies and other facebook crap....
Don't overreact..
