    You could edit the hosts file like this:

    0.0.0.0 "www.facebook.com"

    But without the quotes...I had to put the quotes in to keep from getting the URL.

    This is one way of doing it.

    Only way would be using the right software and hardware if you want users to not be able to get to a certain website. Just putting something in Hosts, the user can still get around with it with a portable browser on a USB Stick. If you take your time to look at the Facebook Watch videos, you would find out that there would be a situation that it can cause that person you want to block, will find a way around those blocks.
