Question about SonicWALL Pro 2040 Firewall
You will need to use a third party firmware or update your current firmware on the firewall

SOURCE: Sir I have SonicWall pro 2040,
Just upgrade to the IPS (instrusion prevention subscription) for your 2040 and check Prevent ALL for HIGH, MEDIUM and LOW (LOW blocks Facebook like a champ). You'll find some other services blocked as well such as Terminal Services, but you can filter individual LOW priority attacks to allow those connections in (I recommend VPN for Terminal services anyway).
I actually was looking for a way to OPEN connections to Facebook while preventing LOW priority attacks and found your post.
