How can I make Facebook auto-play videos only if I’m on WiFi?

pcaulfield

I don’t need to get overage fees from my wireless carrier because facebook wants to push more advertising my way. Is there a way to limit these to WiFi only at least? I’m using an iPhone 4S.

Go to Settings, then scroll down to Facebook. Hit the Facebook icon, the Settings>Photo and Video. There is a toggle there that you can switch to “Auto-Play on WiFi Only.”
