i don't really care about facebook and what they do, i don't really use them. don't get me wrong, i am not saying that their FB integration was a good idea, i feel better if my CF account is not linked with any social media (they also have twitter linked when you hit "share your dashboard"). whatever they use, openid, twitter, linkedin, stumble upon, g+ or any other, doesn't really matter to me. what they can really do to me (and you), really? my facebook is not my home, my facebook is not my life; whatever they do to my account, whatever happen to my account will do me no harm.
but again, they should have build their own system/ anti-cheat filter, not relying other's. and i heard FB login is an optional now, no longer mandatory.

Anyone can run their own mail server, and it's under their own control. Nobody can install their own Facebook. You're at their whim, and they're in constant breach of European privacy laws, and contrary to the human rights act. Constantly.
who control your facebook account (profile and other informations)? is your email system/ protocol private and a direct transfer ( between sender and recipient)? is the agent, protocol and other service (listed below) made by yourself (to make sure no one really watches you)?
you control what you put in your facebook profile and everything there, the same when you sign for free pop3mail. privacy is just another concept. if you do not want other to see photo you post (your profile and anything), make it private. but doesn't mean the data is safe and you are the only one who can access it; fb staff, 3rd party or random people might still be able to see, it for a purpose (case study : CrowdFlower published task to verify twitter user). if you really don't want others to access your info, do not post/ share it on the internet. what happen when your private information made public?
i assume running a social media site like facebook is not as simple as running a mail server, but who own mail server at their home? like how many? not everyone have the time to learn and understand its agents and protocols, spam filter, encryption (both sender and receiver should know the same encryption method), anti-virus, firewall and so on, you know better.
but if we are talking about the internet (privacy), every single bit you sent from your device stored in a local router, small server, bigger server, database ceter untill it hit the target. even if you remove/ delete it, the data stay there for a while, scaterred in many places. and some sites (paid service or just a random stalkers) makes a duplicate, backup everything people post. your post from 15 years ago might still there, somewhere. what photo people upload (fb, twitter, instagram, basically any social media) this very second are listed in certain site, and it is free for everyone to view.
and now who control the internet (services, server, data center etc), its every single bit data transfer and records? maybe we should go back using wired tin can or paper cup.

yes, email and social media are different (by its definition and purpose), but don't confuse login process with other concept.
