Facebook (and all major websites) have mirrored hosting all around the world, so they are actually hosted in many countries …

Forgive the over-simplification, it arose out of some experimentation and comparison I was involved in with CDNs for an overseas client who sells worldwide. We tried to assess whether there was good value in it for Australian users and for whatever reason one comparison showed that Facebook was tracing back to Ireland at the time (I have no idea why, not really my field).

Anyhoo the upshot was the CDN certainly allowed us to load the client’s site much faster in Australia but it does not appear to have affected rankings here.
