Sorry, that's old and incorrect.

... you must personally serve a valid California or Federal subpoena on
Facebook. Out-of-state civil subpoenas must be domesticated in California.


Facebook charges a mandatory fee of $500.00 per user account. Please
enclose payment with your properly served subpoenas. A custodian
declaration will be included with the return of materials, if any.
Notarized declarations carry an additional $100.00 fee.


Facebook requires a minimum of 30 days to process a civil subpoena.
Additional time may be required depending on various factors. You may
request your subpoena be expedited by submitting an additional $200.00 fee
with your subpoena.

That's also roughly in line with Nextel and others for CALEA.
