[xubuntu] How Does One Block Facebook on a System?

[xubuntu] How Does One Block Facebook on a System?

Hi all,

I thought this was going to be an easy case of adding things to the host file. Apparently, the host file is just there for the giggles or I missed something. I am working to get it out of my life and off of my system.

What have I done? I added the entries listed below, then powered off the system(it needed a restart anyway), and flushed DNS.

IPv6 is not in use.

Here’s the output of cat /etc/hosts

Code:        localhost        mycomputer'sname        facebook.com login.facebook.com secure.facebook.com latest.facebook.com inyour.facebook.com beta.facebook.com static.facebook.com touch.facebook.com developers.facebook.com newsroom.fb.com pixel.facebook.com apps.facebook.com graph.facebook.com m.facebook.com upload.facebook.com

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1    ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

Things like DNS servers, Proxies, router configs are out of the question.
