what Joseph said was: “... it's disingenuous if Facebook claims to be strongly supporting OSM, while continuing to keep their ... data in a ... proprietary database.”

Of course they can keep their data, what is disingenuous is keeping your crowdsourced data for yourself while presenting yourself as the savior of OpenStreetMap, when all you are actually doing is providing data that would be too bad to be used as is (otherwise they would use it and not share with us, likely) in the hope, someone will fix it for free.
