Hi
Languardian is reporting multiple accesses to facebook, which is blocked internally. i.e. Languardian is picking up the Social Network widgets imbedded in websites, that promote sharing of their content among social networking users.

To stop accesses to social networking sites being recorded as 'web access attempt - social networking' events you can disable the social networking category from the gui as follows:

Administration -> Configuration -> Create new alerts -> Create an alert when a specific website is accessed.

You can then create your own watchlist by adding the relevant keywords for the sites facebook, youtube, twitter to the local website watchlist.
