This news has not been confirmed and the 2nd source who is talking about it on the web (Mideast Youth) are getting conflicting reports.

Several bloogers in Tehran confirmed that sofar!If u need their email let me know.
yes Please Hamed,
the problem is that there are other bloggers who can access Facebook and we don’t know yet weather the block is limited to one or few ISPs. Since we are not sure if all country’s ISPs are blocking facebook we can’t talk about “Iran blocking facebook.”
