I know what you mean, but nobody is going to enumerate the likely data structures used in each feature supported by facebook just because you're too lazy to pick a specific feature.

What will knowing that data structure FB used will help you in anyway? If you have a problem of picking which data structure to use, then either post it here or compare the pro's and con's of each data structure and pick the one that best suites the problem. They don't use some magical data structure that no one knows. Most data structures are based on the basic ones like trees,arrays,list.... so get to know the fundamentals first.
