How do I lock down content within an Application Feed widget?

When publishing content to your app, you may have an application feed widget on your homepage or another page on your intranet. Is it possible to lock down this content so that it only displays to specific people?

In the image above, we have a simple application feed widget which shows items published to a Buy and Sell application. 

While Widgets do not have permissions assigned to them, you can lock down content at the folder level of the app where the content is published. It will only appear in this application feed to the desired individuals.
