Turns out that Facebook requires authentication to embed content as of October 2020. So the very nature of OEmbed (open embed) is undermined... but whatever. IDK why they're listed in the providers.json file.

Here's the response to the request below (we need a valid app ID)

{
   "error": {
      "message": "(#200) Provide valid app ID",
      "type": "OAuthException",
      "code": 200,
      "fbtrace_id": "A-nRGIiCBPHqiGtMfBBOrgz"
   }
}
