Facebook Video Auto Play Will Eat Your Mobile Data and Wifi

Hope you have noticed the new feature in Facebook which autoplays all the videos that are shared with you. This feature is ON by default on web and Mobile applications.

This feature (I will call it as Bug), will download all the videos, even if you have facebook.com just opened in a tab of your browser or you have the Application installed on your Phone, and will consume a loads of bandwidth of your  Mobile data  / WiFi.

To save your Mobile / WiFi Data Usage bills, Make sure it is Turned OFF, This will load the videos when you need by clicking it as before.
