Facebook deftly straddles Web 2.0 and 3.0. Note, Turtle formats for 
their data objects isn't what makes them 3.0, its the fact that all 
their data objects are represented using Linked Data graphs be it JSON 
or Turtle.

A data representation format is never the basis of Linked Data. Data 
Formats and Data Models are distinct, and at best loosely coupled.

Linked Data is always about de-referencable URI behavior that combines 
naming (denotation) and Web resource identification, constrained by a 
"deceptively simple" data model :-)
