I would like to ask if anyone has the same thought to create a module for this feature or it should be built into the Blog / Page publish system of Orchard itself.

I think it would be lovely that Orchard has this feature to write on the owner's facebook wall when new blog post is published.

There are a few modules on the gallery for Facebook interaction. This does not belong in core as it's too specialized.

You could write an Action for the Rules engine and set it to be triggered when something gets posted. FYI I started to develop a module for this task but didn't complet it yet. The FB API just took my will, as it requires a multi-step authentication for posting to a Page timeline.
