What is/are the IP range(s) for FACEBOOK?

What are the IP ranges that are used by Facebook across its many datacenters?  I'm trying to track access to Facebook websites using Netflow probes and it would be more accurate if I could get an accounting of which IP's service Facebook and other social media sites.

Thanks!

I wanted to know the IP ranges that the FACEBOOK.COM website uses at all of their datacenters to track usage via NETFLOW, not to block access to them.

I have since found that using the linux shell command "whois", this information can be found by doing:

whois -h whois.radb.net '!gAS32934'

This will return ALL of the IP's in use by Facebook, and apparently this information is on Facebook's developer site, according to StackOverflow:
