custom .onion address?

I thought the domain name system on tor used a "16 character name derived from the service's public key"

So have facebook brute-forced a custom domain of their chosing? If true, then thats the whole trust infrastructure of the hidden services is buggered. Unless something else is going on here?

Please can someone enlighten me?

Paris because that is how i feel.
