Thanks for the input, Ed. I have tried what you suggested.

I made a new rule based on the rules already present:

"alert tcp any any -> (msg: " **Alert gtx0.com has been opened**")"

(IP used above is the one for www.gtx0.com)

I used command "snort -d" and opened up gtx0.com in a browser but no notifications or logs were given. Any further tips, anyone?

Here's a quick and dirty way. You can take another rule and copy it. Then you have to pick a Sid that's not in use. 
Change the msg content to the URL. 
If you create a new rules file, you will have to include it in your snort.conf. 
If you using something like barnyard2 there's more to do.

I am quite new to using Snort. 

I was hoping to get pointers on how write a rule to get notification
if a certain website, like say www.facebook.com, is opened in a web browser, and how would I get this notification/alert to show.
