Facebook engineer John Millican said earlier this week that the company recently completed its security upgrades to the platform which includes HSTS preloading.  

HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) automatically converts HTTP links to HTTPS, which is a more secure protocol that can prevent the exposure of user traffic and Man-in-The-Middle (MITM) attacks.

Millican further advised website owners to support HTTPS and enable HSTS, and those looking for a guide can start with Let’s Encrypt, a certificate authority which provides free digital certificates required for enabling HTTPS on website domains.
