The dunbar number is something a little bit different.

It is the limit to how many people who can keep track of along with all the interrelationships among those people.

It is about survival groups.

Since in facebook, we general neither know nor care about how all the people on our friends lists related to each other in general (and in specific their relative dominance) and since or facebook use is not central to our survival, the dunbar limits are not relevant or controlling here.
