All sources lead to here:

Many people have been wanting more and more functionality between PS3 and Facebook. Many people have also been wanting a Facebook App and have been complaining about how Facebook.com runs on the PS3 Web Browser. There is a easy and fast way to use Facebook on your PS3 Web Browser. Simply type m.Facebook.com into the address bar of your PS3 Web Browser. You'll enjoy Facebook fully on your PS3 with ease. IM will not work unfortunately.

So that was from 2011....

Here is some updated info found....

  • Turn on your PlayStation 3.
  • Select "PlayStation Network."
  • Select "Account Management." If you do not see "Account Management," select "Sign In" and log into your PlayStation Network user account. The option will then appear.
  • Select "Facebook" to load the Facebook application on your PlayStation 3.
  • Select "Share Trophy Information" if you want to share information about the in-game trophies you unlock with your Facebook news feed. Select "Share Purchase Information" to publish information about the PlayStation Store purchases you make with your news feed. Select "Share Game Event Information" to share information about game events you participate in with your news feed. After making a selection, select "On" to enable the feature.
  • Enter your Facebook user account and password to link your Facebook profile with your PlayStation 3.
