Facebook Coding

Is this some BlackHat stuff or just normal code?

So, this guy is trying to sell his companies services on SEO and Facebook marketing. He was big on pushing their Facebook marekting and what he says sounds good but when I looked at the page source for one of the facebook pages he was pushing, I developed some questions, to which I don't have an answer.

My questions relate to code and whether or not it might be some black hat stuff going on. Code below is as on the Source View. There's a lot of empty <div>'s and <span>'s.

So, here they are in order as on the page:
    <input type="hidden" id="post_form_id" name="post_form_id" value="d4f2c3d8b0b4315d4c2639639f65831c" autocomplete="off" /><div id="pagelet_presence"></div>

    div id="FB_HiddenContainer" style="position:absolute; top:-10000px; width:0px; height:0px;" ></div><div id="blueBar" class=""></div>

    <form id="logout_form" method="post" action="/logout.php" onsubmit="return Event.__inlineSubmit(this,event)"><input type="hidden" autocomplete="off" name="post_form_id" value="d4f2c3d8b0b4315d4c2639639f65831c" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_dtsg" value="ZIdqd" autocomplete="off" /><input type="hidden" autocomplete="off" name="ref" value="mb" /><input type="hidden" autocomplete="off" name="h" value="21ec091f8b59f819f622eb3ab9a22009" /><label class="uiLinkButton logoutButton"><input type="submit" value="Logout" /></label></form>

Or is this kind of code normal for a Facebook business page?

Nothing too remarkable about those snippets. Looks like it's part of the "connect with facebook" code.

Here is some documentation on FB_HiddenContainer (#1 result in G, btw) [forum.developers.facebook.net...]
