    If I set a permission on a post to share with just one other person (specific friends) from my friends list will all my post I now create only have that Specific friends permission until I change the permission manually prior to posting it ? Thanks

    It shouldn't be set on all future posts, however, you should check before posting the first post after this post with permissions.

    @trigshady Thanks. I really was looking for some clarification as this exactly what mine does. If I set a permission on a post then all subsequent post have this permission set on it. I can repeat this flawlessly every time but couldn’t find any specific permission policy under FB in regards.

    But these permissions do apply just for the next post you post, right?

    At one stage it remembered your last privacy setting and made that the default.
    I suspect that how it works will depend a little bit on the platform. How it behaves in the browser is different from the ios app...

    Yes it does. It seems that’s the way it works for me but I had someone else telling me that the permissions do not remain and go back to friends !

    Yes I agree. I’m sure different platforms play a part and wonder if different countries handle the fb permission settings differently. I’m just questioning the mobile app
