How can I block Social Media portal using Mikrotik?

How can I block Social Media portal using Mikrotik?

I am not a network savvy but I need to block my user population from using Facebook, Tweeter, etc.

I currently use Mikrotik to manage my network proxy and firewall.

I will appreciate if you could give me hand with this because my bandwidth is being consumed pretty fast and the nature of the work my users have doesn't require them to have the kind of consumption they have.

Best regards,

Use the content filter if available.

Otherwise, you would need to employ an internal proxy and then direct all users to it, the issue more and more are now transitioning to using secure (httpd://) connection which would effectively bypass any proxy rules you have since secure connections can not be proxied without a man-in-the-middle behavior. The result if which you deny any and all port 80/443 access and define destination on the secure site t,hat are either permitted or denied........
