Auto play maxes data plans

3 Sep, 2014

A study on Facebook Autoplay claims that the feature may be to blame for above normal data usage. It concludes that this feature can cause users to max out their data limits and suffer higher charges more often than before it was rolled out. The Facebook Autoplay feature also sometimes causes videos to play automatically, when a person is at a computer. While this may not be a problem for many computer users, it could still be one for those with the limited data that is offered by many satellite internet providers.
