depends on your setup and savvy of your end-users. Quick, free and dirty solution is to poison your internal DNS. Add zone in DNS facebook.com point the @ record to either 127.0.0.1 or to an internal server you create that has the company Internet policy as the default document as a reminder not to visit such sites.

You could modify a hosts file with facebook pointing to localhost, and then distribute that to the required computers using group policy.

Is there any way that I can edit group policies on the server to block users?

i think you're asking a different question which would require a different set of answers.
you want to search for "group policy filtering" as such http://tinyurl.com/23dqld8

Why Group Policy????

Might be worth investigating something like openDNS.
