What FB does is their business, they have created an extension that serves their own business needs, it's not part of OAUTH (but seems to fit the extension model). Everyone is allowed to create extensions that they feel are needed. I believe that they feel that OpenID Connect is too complicated for them to implement thus they have gone their worn route.
