Is Facebook using your data?
FB is a great social media
tool and I use it everyday. They are smart and continue to grow as trends
You may have noticed that
videos are becoming more popular. They
are the big focus for 2015 for many reasons.
Facebook has noticed how much revenue and traction they are missing by
letting YouTube have all the video fun so they have made it simple and enticing
to place your video directly on Facebook.
They are also handling this
video differently. It immediately starts
playing. This video uses A LOT of data
and cost you A LOT of money. Watch out,
because Twitter is rolling this out too.
You will want to shut off the
auto play video feature so that it only plays when you are connected to
Wi-Fi. This will save your data for
things that you decide you want to use it for.
How to this?
Android:Open Facebook>go to settings> Change "Videos Auto-play” to OFF or set it
to Wi-Fi only.
IOS: Go to
Settings first> then open Facebook and select Settings. Under "Video” tap auto-play, then you can
choose OFF or Wi-Fi only.
Keep in mind that videos and
photos take up a lot more data than text.
So, if friends are sending you videos and pictures through text, open
them when you are connected to Wi-Fi.
Or, tell your friends to knock it off!
