Data usage suddenly spikes?
Have you noticed that suddenly you seem to be using more data than you ever have? Whilst this is ok if you have an unlimited data plan, those with a capped plan are falling foul of a change that has happened in the background by facebook.
You may have noticed now that when you scroll down your timeline, videos play as you scroll by. Facebook has changed your settings and switched videos to auto play in your feed. hammering your data usage and in some cases landing users with huge bills
So how do you fix it?
On your iPhone go to settings, scroll down to facebook, then settings, under the video section, Auto play and choose wifi only or off
On android go in to the facebook app, then settings, scroll down to app settings, choose Video Auto play and choose wifi only or off
On a Samsung, go into the facebook app, then click the left button (next to the home key) choose settings, choose video Auto play and choose wifi only or off
