Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

facebook is https only, you can browse to http://www.facebook.com until you're blue in the face, it automatically redirects you to https://www.facebook.com, you can't use facebook without https. the same goes for sites like google where any non https requests are simply redirected to https requests, this is by design of the sites in question, not your squid, therefore blocking https access to facebook for instance blocks facebook
An option is to blackhole routes to network blocks: (Listed are for FB)
ip route add blackhole 220.127.116.11/19
ip route add blackhole 18.104.22.168/22
ip route add blackhole 22.214.171.124/22
ip route add blackhole 126.96.36.199/20
ip route add blackhole 188.8.131.52/20
ip route add blackhole 184.108.40.206/18
