block all facebook but one page

I know there are multiple discussion threads on how to allow just one FB page but block all other access . I tried every single of them and none worked properly.

I created a url filtering profile allowing just my company page and blocked social media but the problem is when a user first clicks my company page he/she would be taken to a login page. how do I efficiently allow it? Also, by doing this, I broke the page layout. all the graphics won't load. Also, the logout button won't show up when I allowed just that page.

did anyone performed this task? if so, please let me know.

 

thanks.

@SThatipelly,

You'll need to allow a lot more resources than just your corporate page, since all of the rest of the content pulls from different facebook sources. You'll need to use something like Fiddler or and alert-all temporary security rule on the firewall to actually gather all of the required URLs in addition to your company page. Then you'll separate out the policy allowing your corporate page and the one actually denying the social-media category.

@BPry thanks. I have the Alert policy today but I see so many URLs. it can only get messier if I allow them as facebook  adds new urls often.

I think is better not to go this way and convince my management to block entire facebook.

@SThatipelly,

It does get extremely messy, but you won't have to update it that often. It's definitely better if you simply do an all or nothing approach for this though.
