I am getting NXDOMAIN for www.ipv6.facebook.com thus it likely is fully
gone now:

www.facebook.com is nicely at 2a03:2880:2050:1f01:face:b00c:: (which is
kinda scary as typically the lowest address is a subnet anycast address,
but I guess they have just configured it as a /128 and then it is not an
issue...)

Greets,
