This is not possible with SEP - only option here is to monitor and restrict the application executed by users with help of ADC component - have a look here as well:

You would need another symantec software to monitor the user activity on the web and this would be

Symantec Web Gateway Features URL filtering with flexible policy controls, and in-depth reporting and alerts.

Thats not possible with SEP.

You can only learn what applications are installed on the Client.

Emails/ FB/ all comes under HTTP so you can consider firewall rules to block them. Even then it wont give you the report like Threat management gateway / ISA
