Default yes it does

Facebook made its player months ago, it open videos with its player for me too. To mention some times it doesn't and lets me chose with what I open but I think thats just a bug.
So you will face that from now on.

did your FVD app get updated?
if yes, it might require a configuration like it did the first time you installed it

as suggested by @ra3or clearing app data and cache from your application settings is suggested.
