Just go to the Properites of the Access Rule that you are already using to allow users to the Internet.
Go to the To Tab.
There are two large boxes there. The top one probably has External listed in it.
The bottom one is the Exceptions box and it probably empty right now.  Add the Set you created to that.

Create a Domain Name Set.  Call it Evil Websites or something.  Add domain names to it with this pattern:
*.facebook.com
*.msnbc.com
*.twitter.com
*.cnn.com
Add the Domain Set to the Access Rule you are already using.  Put it in the Exceptions Box in the To Tab.
Note:
URL Sets will only work dependably for Web Proxy Clients
Domain Sets will not work with SecureNAT Clients
SecureNAT Clients can only use IP-based Sets like Address Sets
