ur using IPcop, can you can block easily with ipcop, then why you needs iptables ??

with iptables, you will have to block IP by Ip or full subnet  , you would not be able to block by hostname such as facebook.com

using an IP WHOIS lookup facebook owns the IP range 69.63.176.0-69.63.191.255

So you can block 69.63.176.0/20 to block all IP Addresses owned by facebook.
