    For the Social Posting feature, there should be an option that allows you not to autopost. As it stands, if the feature is enabled, we do not have the option not to autopost a particular post.

    This option will be useful.

    Also, could you explain why this useful? There's nothing stopping folks from copying and pasting the the URL into Facebook itself and posting it. Thanks

    @rkovachev Ok. Is that the only option you want-- to disable per-page/post publishing to your Fan Page?

    Just a tick to disable for that post only.

    Right, but you only want this for posting to Fan Pages? No other types of posting?

    I use the plugin only for my fan pages but other users could use it for their timelines too.

    I only have use for it for the fan page. Others may also want it for the personal profile.

    You are right in that I could just open up my Facebook page and post a status update 'manually' though that requires that I either open up a browser tab each time & enter in the URL or keep the tab permanently open. Not to mention, I also post updates to Twitter and Pinterest so that's just more tabs.

    It's just a huge convenience. WP to Twitter is a plugin that makes this seamless and I'd highly recommend modeling how this component works with that plugin. It means I have one less tab open.

    I do 20 post updates a day so it's all about speed and convenience each time I post.

    Thanks!
