We know Facebook pages use iframes. Can these iframes be indexed by search engines for SEO purposes?

Well, it’s Facebook’s choice and not the other way around. Google would love to do it, I’m sure. –  Alex Dec 2 at 13:28
    
Well it appears that Google is doing so now: I just googled "some words I know I posted on the wall of a Facbook page site:facebook.com - and my Facebook page IS listed in the search results. –  MaryC.fromNZ Dec 3 at 10:37

Facebook page contents are not seen indexed by Google yet, but the page title and profile information is seen to be tracked, and shown as back links in webmaster tools.

Most of the links inside Facebook pages are carrying the no follow attribute so no linkjuice is seemed to be transferred.

From my observation, how posting links and contents into Facebook page helps is, doing so can make our new content visible so fast to search engine crawlers and the link will be indexed ASAP.
