Prevent visitors from editing an AGO map

I recently published a map in AGO and shared it on Facebook.  The map has one editable points layer coming from a feature class hosted in my ArcGIS Server 10.0.  After sharing the map on FB I saw that everyone who visited my map could edit and add features to the editable layer.

My goal is to share a map on FB that merely displays the data and does not allow visitors to edit it.  However, I also need the ability to edit the data myself via the ArcGIS app for Android.  So as I'm popping points, they appear in the shared map, but nobody who views the shared map can pop points.

I don't see an obvious way to do this.  Is it possible?  It seems that if you enable editing you enable it globally for anyone and everyone who pulls up the map.
