    No. The MAC address acts as address parameter only in subnet (until Data Link Layer).

    Web servers can't see your MAC address, but software installed and running on your computer definitely can.

    So while I can say that Facebook "might" have a hard time seeing your MAC - things like Google Chrome can leak your Mac address to Google.
