  • You can find Facebook under socialnet or social in most blacklists.  For example, facebook.com is included in more than 12 different Shallalist categories.  You could also add a DNS host override to resolve facebook.com to something else.



  • @KOM:

    You could also add a DNS host override to resolve facebook.com to something else.

    Works until people figure out their DNS queries are being "redirected" somewhere else and that then can override that override with their own hosts file entries.  May work well enough for a non computer tech environment where nobody knows anything about DNS, networking etc.  But would probably be short lived in a computer tech environment.



  • A proxy would be the most effective way to do this, and you already have another thread open with some very good information already on the subject.



  • use pfblockerNG or use the firewall to block all https sites and let squidGuard block http

    use http://www.tcpiputils.com/browse/as/32934

    copy all the facebook IP CIDR ex:31.13.71.0/24
