we're running a wifi hotspot system with about 1,000 users daily. The top 10 domains on the firewall stats (content filter) are apple and f*cebook domains. So when you plan filtering out apple and/or f*cebook you might also shut down the hotspot, because for most users the 'net' then seems to be br0ken.
