Hello,

 

Yes you can block via control app, and use application override to permit messenger and block facebook:

Hi,

 

I blocked "Web Filter" -> "General Interest - Personal" -> "Social Networking" category and created URL Filter.

 

messenger.com - Simple - Exempt - Enable fbcdn.net - Simple - Exempt - Enable

Users can login in https://www.messenger.com and use FB messenger.
