Our company has decided to block Facebook plus various other social networking sites.

I have amended a hosts file which seem to do the trick. However I need to role this out to 80 users. I understand that this can be done via group policy. However, i've also seen people suggest that web sites can be blocked via entries in my windows DNS servers.

Can anybody let me know what I need to do to the DNS to achieve this?
