Basically the major difference between Sophos XG Firewall and PFsense is that Sophos is a nextgen firewall based on objects and services and works on layer 7.

Instead, Pfsense is a layer 3 firewall based on addresses and ports that is more difficult to block services like Facebook.

On Sophos XG firewall you can block these kinds of services easily.
