I have succesfully created fake accounts using the .onion address before, 
however the last time was already a few months ago. Maybe they changed 
something since then. I still needed to enter an email address and a phone 
number though.

Nonetheless: Facebook is a direct enemy to your privacy and will put effort 
into deanonymizing you. They see their onion services just as a way for Tor 
users to connect to them. Many of these users have no choice but to use Tor, 
like those ones living in a country where Facebook is censored. For this 
scenario, having the user connect via the onion address is just beneficial for 
the security of the data you send to them in terms of third parties surveiling 
you. They have absolutely no interest in your privacy being protected from 
Facebook, though. Quite the opposite, in fact.
