I'm building an iOS 8 iPhone app that lets user upload photos to Facebook. Can I set the term Facebook as a keyword for my app in iTunes Connect or will that lead to a rejection by Apple?

You shouldn't use trademarked words as keywords for your app:

When choosing a keyword, don’t use competing app names, company or product names, or trademarked names. Avoid inappropriate or objectionable terms or irrelevant words such as celebrity names; all keyword submissions are reviewed by Apple.
