The only other way is to block traffic to all facebook site IPs. The reported ones are
  65.201.208.24/29
  65.204.104.128/28
  66.93.78.176/29
  66.199.37.136/29
  66.220.144.0/20
  67.200.105.48/30
  69.63.176.0/20
  66.92.180.48/28
  69.171.224.0/19
  73.252.64.0/18
  74.119.76.0/22
  204.15.20.0/22
or, in short, hellofalot. You can create a "Reject" policy for HTTP and HTTPS to those adress blocks - or, more smart, fake DNS entries for facebook in your local DNS server. Faking is done by creating
   www.facebook.com
   facebook.com
   login.facebook.com
all with IP 127.0.0.1 (own machine).

If you have an own DNS server running, you'll need to create host entries (type "A") there. Open the DNS Manager, go to "Forward Lookup Zones", create a folder "facebook.com", and create the entries "login", "www" and an empty one, all with 127.0.0.1 as IP.

If you don't use a DNS server, you'll have to open %WinDir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, and insert
127.0.0.1   www.facebook.com
127.0.0.1   facebook.com
127.0.0.1   login.facebook.com
there - on each client. This is, of course, unreliable, as everybody is able to remove those entries again if not specially protected.
