How to Disable Autoplay Videos on Facebook
In March, Facebook announced that it would soon allow video ads to automatically play in your News Feed. The new feature, which seems to do a lot for Facebook’s advertising clients and very little for its members, is slated to roll out in late April and has already begun to appear for many.
Here’s a guide to nipping it in the bud:
1. Log in to Facebook. Once you’re in and can see your News Feed, click on the arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen.
2. Select Settings in the drop-down menu.
3. On the left side of the page, there will be a list of sections. Select Videos at the very bottom.
4. Oh, look. Facebook has enabled autoplay videos in your feed as a default. How thoughtful. Click the arrow next to the On button to change that.
