Go to the Email Setup Icon on the device and set it up there.

All the account emails must match but it may be possible your IT policy is blocking it if your on a BES system.

I think you mis-read what he's saying.

To the OP, pull the battery out. Leave it out. Goto your providers BIS site (google the name of your provider plus BIS+Provisioning or provider+BIS).

It'll ask for your IMEI/ESN+PIN located either under the battery or in Options>Status of your BB OS from the main screen.

Once entered you can setup your specific providers BIS email address (xxx@provider.blackberry.net) and then you can add your own gmail/ymail/aol/xxx email address (up to 10). Once all complete pop in your Battery, on the providers' BIS site tell it to resend service books to your BB; you BB will receive it.

Then try FaceBook.
If you cannot get past the first/second paragraph above then the issue with your provider > you may not have a BIS data provisioned. I get the same thing you get on my Telus 9700 "I want to use a work email account with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server" because I'm on a payas you go account so no data provisioned.
