Unfortunately it doesn't do this at this time.
You might post a request for this feature to be considered for a future version here -
Input from this web page goes directly into a database that management has direct access to read, and which they also track and gather statistics on. It also allows other users to vote on these so Sage can get an idea of the demand

The default Facebook link is for searching the contact's name. It will not provide you a direct link to the contact's profile.
If you want a direct link to their profile, you'll have to create a new link or modify the existing Facebook URL. There are a couple ways to do this.
Create a new website field in ACT! and copy a direct link to their profile
Now create a new link in the Web Info tab to pull the URL from that new field.
This option can be a little tricky because the URL is different depending on if the person has created a Facebook username or not. There may be a single URL to pull the profile that I'm unaware of.
Create a new field in ACT! and copy their ID or alias.
Now create a two new links in the Web Info tab and link it to the new field.

BTW: I've found this target URL works better for LinkedIn
Although I haven't actually tested it since LI changed their search functions... but it might give you some ideas (like using currentCompany and setting sort)
But the ability to remember the record and go to it once it's found (like Xobni for Outlook) would be the first step to really make this much more useful
I posted some of the things I'd like back last March:
