These are the steps needed to disable it:

  1. Open Facebook app. Under Options, uncheck the sync. calendar and contacts options. Close Facebook app.

  2. Open Options, Device, Advanced System Settings, Service books. Delete all Facebook related entries.

  3. Open Options, Device, Advanced System Settings, Default Services. Select the default for calendar, contact list and messaging.

Please note that you might need to redo all these steps, if you update Facebook app.

By default, Facebook app will automatically update itself. So, don't forget to disable this feature in the Facebook app options.

Hope that helps!
