    facebook is installed by default... there is no way around this. you don't have to use it just because it's on your phone... update it and leave it alone.

    Titanium Backup

    Or if you don't want to use terminal commands, just root your droid, then use titanium backup to get rid of facebook. It allows you to backup any app before removing it, so that you can restore the app at a later point.
