You should manually update Facebook, if you use it.
Or, any other stock apps that came with your phone, that you enjoy using.
Apparently, as I understand it, the apps that came with your phone won't notify you they have updates (when/if they do) because that is handled through Market, and as far as Market knows, you've never downloaded the app (which is accurate).
So if you want updates... you have to install the app. Even if you install the same version, having downloaded it, Market will henceforth give you updates.
The new Facebook For Android is a lot more complete than the one that ships with the Acclaim. You can now manage requests/invites, notifications don't need to be refreshed, and there's some kind of image/video stream on the bottom (not a fan of that feature). The News Feed looks exactly the same, and still has the bug where it will sometimes scroll down on its own... but with update notifications, if they fix that, you'll get fixed a lot sooner.

(I used the AppBrain.com link because the Apps site here is having problems. Shouldn't matter once you hit the 2D barcode and get to the Market.)
