As explained by Google about Traffic source dimensions: Every referral to a web site has an origin, or source. Possible sources include: “google” (the name of a search engine), “facebook” (the name of a referring site), “spring_newsletter” (the name of one of your newsletters), and “direct” (users that typed your URL directly into their browser, or who had bookmarked your site).

You Post your link to your Facebook pages is called Facebook post, but if your post has been shared and some one clicks on it then it is called Facebook referral.

l.facebook.com is a form of traffic redirected through Facebook, called a link shim. ...In essence, people who have a fake URL for a personal Facebook profile often end up inadvertently publishing personal information.

The l.facebook.com is a type of traffic that has been diverted through Facebook through what is known as a connection shim. Basically, individuals who have vanity URLs for their own Facebook profile frequently end up unexpectedly delivering individual data.

This article has the best info on the facebook.com/referral question that I've seen - https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Articles/facebook-com-referral-on-Google-Analytics/ba-p/539366.

As for the discrepancy you are seeing between FB and GA, I've seen similar issues at times - hoping someone else will have some insight into that one!

Facebook referral traffic means getting clicks from Facebook users. For example, if you are posting your website links in Facebook page, through that link someone visited your website means those processes will be called as Facebook referral traffic.
