No. It will not look bad. social media meetings and contacts is a sign of our modern times. In any event, how you initially met or came to know each other is not as important as the events that took place after, which cemented your relationship, particularly your having flown to his country to personally meet with and got to know him. You are OK.

So long as you met him within 2 years of filing for the fiance visa, you should be fine. That said, Facebook can be very helpful in documenting the bona fide nature of the marriage. It will take a bit of time to get him here, so please be patient. The general processing time for fiance visas and their consular processing counterpart is about 6-9 months.
I think you omitted some details about your "case." Your question only outlines the details of your courtship and engagement.
Is there a lawsuit or potential litigation involved? A divorce? An alleged crime? Please share!
The fact that you met through Facebook is not an adverse factor. Many people are meeting through social networking sites and online dating. The issue becomes documenting the relationship.
