Do you have an account in facebook?

I can simply ask- ''Do you have a facebook account?''

You have accounts ON websites. This is just a convention, just as having an account WITH a bank is.

By the way, it would be "Do you have a Facebook account?". "An" is used before words which start with a vowel.

‘Seemingly, however, this sort of thing seems to be acceptable on websites and in emails.’

The example is from Oxforddictionaries.com. The same preposition is used with "site" in the same meaning. Consider it as a surface just to memorize.
