Deny Facebook Posting

I've been playing around with trying to block Facebook posting but allow all other access to Facebook. I setup a deny rule for the 'facebook-posting' app and then setup a rule below it allowing 'facebook' but, this doesn't seem to stop posting. The logs don't show any traffic for 'facebook-posting' so wondered whether this will only work with SSL Decryption configured or if I've setup the rules incorrectly?

Re: Deny Facebook Posting

Yes, this needs SSL decryption. Without SSL decryption your choices are to completely allow/deny all Facebook functions. With decryption enabled, you can choose a separate action for each Facebook function.

Thanks Jared, I thought that might have been the case.
