Dear all experts,

Is it possible to use Facebook security control in WordPress?  For example, every post in my WordPress is posted by my Facebook account, where only specific group of people in my Facebook can view / reply this post in WordPress.

Thanks in advance

Kind of.  You would have to develop an app using OpenGraph that somehow hooks into the read permissions for each user (so a login would be required) and then depending on the results of the check, you have WordPress show or hide the post.

It's not the easiest thing thing in the world to do, though, because FB doesn't give you the full set of permissions:


You might have an easier time creating your WordPress site to use FB logins and show/hide posts based on login status.
