You can remove all web app icons from the Dash by disabling the Firefox addons: "Unity Websites integration" (accessed from Firefox->tools-addons). You may need to restart Firefox and log out and log back in to Ubuntu for the changes to take effect.

Note that this will remove all webapp integration, not just for facebook. – Jeremy Kerr Nov 14 '12 at 1:49
