Unfortunately the FaceBook app doesn't just _insert_ these types of URI's. It also seems to _replace_ already existing URI's of the type http://www.facebook.com/profilename with the new fb:// pseudo URI's. 

This means that due to iPhone/Mac syncing, all such URI's that I had manually added to my Mac's contacts have now been converted into fb:// strings, which are unfortunately not very useful on my computer :-( Hopefully this bug will be fixed.
