Important: there are currently some issues with this filter. It is recommended not to use until this issue is solved.

Ever accidentally publicize a post that you didn’t mean to? This snippet will prevent the connections from being auto-selected, so you need to manually select them if you’d like to publicize something.

add_filter( 'publicize_checkbox_default', '__return_false' );
