Facebook's Autoplay Videos
Facebook is focused on delivering business opportunities through their platform. If you use Facebook as a marketing tool, you might wanna take a look at it. It increases the engagement for videos too. BUT... What about the distraction? Auto-playing videos on newsfeed?!
I don't know what's got into their heads, but it sounds annoying for me. May be, I'm easily distracted. How about you? It might boost views for videos (though users didn't really wanted to watch it) and make their advertising partners blushing.
Facebook is thoughtful in a way as it stops playing videos as you scroll past them. Yet if you are like me, you may find it extremely annoying. Honestly, I can't even take a flashing banner. Once I noticed the first occurrence of auto-playing video on my Facebook newsfeed,
1. Log in to your Facebook account.
2. Navigate to Facebook Settings.
3. Jump to Videos setting from left pane.
4. Now set Off for the Auto-Play Videos option.
