    Why? Deleting it wont free up any useable internal space (its in the system partition)

    If you insist you dont need a script. Just delete /system/app/facebok1.4-universal.apk

    because I hate facebook and don't want any trace of it on my property.

    how do I just delete it as you described below?

    Use a file manager with root access enabled, such as root explorer or super manager and navigate to /system/app/ Scroll down to the facebook app, tap and hold, and select delete...
