Sanjay, was it the link to the Hub or the complete Hub? If it was the link, that's okay. Was the person who posted it the author, or someone else? There's a lot to be considered here.
The only people who can post an entire hub on any other website and NOT violate copyright law are the original author of the hub or someone who has that author's permission to do so. If you've found one of your hubs copied/pasted at FB and that person didn't get your permission to do so, they're violating your rights and you should ask them to remove it.
If you believe that your original copyrighted content has been copied without your permission then a DMCA NOI may be appropriate.
You can find instructions for doing so here.

If posted partially and with attribution, that probably falls under fair use. But if someone posted it whole, that's no bueno.
Thanks everyone for taking time to give the helpful advice. About 80% of the content has been posted without attribution. I think I should request the person to put the link. Lot of people are ignorant about the violations. Thanks again.

At least four of the articles that have the red © symbol refer back to the article itself if I check the link. Could you folks check on that please?

Should HubPages do more to check for copyright violations in hubs?Hub Hopping isn't the answer. Flagging violations may help increase a Hubber's score, which may, in turn, increase their visibility on HP, but this carrot will only go so far. Experienced hubbers and newbies alike use copyrighted...
