Note that it's a "storage system", not just a "file system". It can store and be accessed like a traditional filesystem, but it specializes in representing higher-level objects which don't need to exist in purely one place in a tree. (e.g. a photo, a comment, a "like", a blog post) Or a tree of 5TB videos with Unix mode bits that you can access via a FUSE filesystem. Whatever.
