I want to block facebook through my Nokia seimens ADSL modem provided by BSNL. But when I enter www.facebook.com in the url filter exclude portion, i am not getting any other sites except gmail. All other site are blocked.
I think the way I am doing this is wrong. Please help.

under advance setup
Parenteral controlls

*Or maybe type in the IP address(es) of Facebook - see if that works?

You need to block it on port 443 also.

Just use FB Limiter. http://www.facebooklimiter.com/. Download and install the free version and set it up. Job done - and work a treat when I used it on a business system to prevent staff from accesing FB & YT during work.

Not gonna happen, far too many to block.
