Facebook uses a custom version of MySQL. The site is almost certainly not vulnerable, since it's basically the biggest target on the web and people have been attacking it for years, mostly without success.
SQL injection vulnerability isn't a weakness in a database, it's a weakness in the application using the database. An SQL engine's job is to execute SQL statements, and injection works by tricking an application into sending statements that the developer didn't intend it to.
