In Facebook/Youtube employee waste more time and also consuming your network resources. Employees updating their timeline,view videos and jabbering about life when they should be working, they are also being marketed to and playing Mafia Wars on company time.
Thats why we need to block facebook/youtube in work place.
For this we use Cleasos as a application filter. I am using Clearos 7.3 Community Version
For installation of Clearos click here
Step 1: I assuming that you have installed Application filter from Marketplace if not then Install it.
Login to Your Clearos Server by Typing
https://x.x.x.x:81 Where x is your Clearos ip address.
Login with your username and password.
Step 2: Go to Gateway and Click Application filter.
Go to Blocked Applications and Click on Edit
Select Apps that you want to Block in your Workplace.

In this way you can block lots of application/website including google,torrent etc without any extra cost.
