If you have a credit card entered for anything Apple may require you periodically verify it is still valid and correct. I don't use Facebook but some apps may have associated subscriptions of in-app purchases even if the app itself is nominally free. You can try setting your payment to none and see if that works.

Removing a credit card from an account - Change or remove your Apple ID payment information - https://support.apple.com/HT201266 - More information at: https://discussions.apple.com/message/15891166

If you can‘t choose None when you edit your Apple ID payment information - https://support.apple.com/HT203905 - also make sure you don't have any active subscriptions or are set as the Family Organizer for a Family Sharing plan.

You can only choose None when you set your payment method up from the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, or Mac App Store. None is not an option when you use the Apple ID account page to set your payment method.
