Check out this article. Looks like Facebook is planning to stay having video advertisements that auto play as you scroll through your stream. Once this happens I won’t be using Facebook anymore from my mobile which means I’ll be checking my Facebook maybe once a month or so. This feature while it will make them money will cause user like myself who are on a data cap to use even more data for Facebook.
If you want my suggestion on a solution to this problem come check out Google+. It’s an amazing community. Takes a little to get used to, but there’s so much you can do with Google+. And they won’t be meeting with your privacy. Well they won’t be messing with your project when it comes to people. The NSA and other government agencies, well that is a whole different story
