Hello, badly need your help.

I am currently connecting FB as a sales channel, and will try to connect the store's catalog to my FB store, do I really need to put the GTIN codes for absolutely all products that I sell? Shopify does not reject any product missing the GTIN while adding new products to the store's catalog, but I am afraid that Facebook does. Please let me know how it works. Thanks

GTIN is not mandatory to let the product get approved in FB. 

FB required either one of these information (GTIN, MPN or Brand). Shopify will setup "Brand" if you have setup Vendor in the product.

I understood. Appreciate your fast answer. One quick question: will it work is the Vendor name for all the products is set up as my company name? Thanks again and have nice Sunday:-)

Elena, if the products are made by you, then do it! It will work. Otherwise, if you sell other's products like Nike, Adidas or New Balance, you'd want that information there. This will help.
