With the new Facebook user interface slowly being deployed, they also made a change that is a bit annoying. Whenever you scroll past a video one of your FB friends posted it would automatically play. It’s a bit scary especially when you don’t expect it and the volume on your computer is not on mute
Here’s how you disable that “Feature”:
1. From the Facebook web page, in the top right hand corner, click on the down arrow (next to the lock icon)
2. Then click Settings.
3. From the General Account Settings page, In the navigation pane (left side) click Videos.
4. In the AutoPlay Videos setting, click the down arrow and click Off.
No More AutoPlay Videos!
