When I am talking about plural ("Sites"), should I use does or do? In case I'm talking in plural, I should use "do". But "like Facebook", is singular. So which one is correct?

In this case, you would use the plural "do." The prepositional phrase "like Facebook" modifies the plural noun "sites," and is not itself the subject of the sentence.
