That's quite easy: Block the IPs that belong to Facebook,
for example 185.60.216.35 and 157.240.20.36. Instead of
blocking them, you could also redirect them to your internal
web server which displays a nice "Back to work!" motivational
image. ;-)

However, this will only work from within your LAN. If the
users are able to access a WLAN with their smartphones, or
use their smartphones to connect to the Internet, the main
problem - probably any "doing Facebook at work" - cannot
be solved that easily. But you can get your "work-related
resources" to not being able to access Facebook.
