How to block access to social media sites on router level on Virgin Media Hub 3?

I am looking to block access to all social media sites, specifically, snapchat and instagram but regardless of what I try they are still accessible. Using the same approach I managed to block google.com and it worked wonders but no clue why it is not working with the social sites.

The approach I am taking is.
1. Obtaining IP address of the site using terminal, i.e., ping snapchat.com
2. Navigating to IP and port filtering on my virgin hub settings and choosing protocol as all, source ip as all and inputing the ip of the site (216.239.36.21 in the case of snapchat.com)

Has anyone been able to get it to work using this or a different method, it's making me go nuts
