jointsurgery, welcome to Webmasterworld! Little doubt about indexing, even if by stealth... just curious as to the query.

Bing...

I think we all have to assume that it doesn't. Only the brief header of your FB page is visible for Google. I wonder whether there is a way to insert your external website link into your FB page so that it would show in that header.

I think Bing has much better facebook results because of their tight integration

Google does get the FB pages but not the content of that FB page. Google can only the accounts and not the content of the accounts.

Well... if you've got a link in that part of your Facebook page that shows publicly, meaning without the need to log in, that link will be indexed then. They are "nofollow", but I'm pretty sure that googlebot disregards the instruction in this particular case.

definitly google crawl and index facebook pages, you can check it out yourself by just typing cache: command with your desired facebook page.
