Never had any problem with facebook colour, it's just standard windows srgb
An easy way to check your image in PS is to> view proof set up and click windows RGB.
I shoot adobe 98 in camera and my workspace in PS is the same, just convert to srgb for anything going to the web, also use "standard windows colour" "preview menu" when using "save for web and devices"

It could also be your browser.
Some browsers don't use the colour profiles that are stored in the images.
Safari actually acknowledges the profile and displays images correctly.

Using sRGB is the best way of 'working around' the problem.

The issue comes back in the day when web design first started out and they wanted pages displaying similarly on all computers.

This is a bit of a problem for photographers though.

Hopefully all browser developers will start including colour profile recognition in their software soon.

All the best!

Before uploading to web, make sure you convert your files to sRGB by using the relative colorimetric intent set to sRGB 2.1
