Facebook's iOS app now auto-plays videos for you

The age of videos that play automatically is upon us. First it was Vine, then it was Instagram, and now Facebook's getting in the mix. A new update for the company's iOS app adds the feature, which will play any and all videos automatically. Before grabbing your pitchfork to storm Facebook's headquarters over slurping all your mobile bandwidth, the feature can be set to work only over Wi-Fi, something that can be toggled in Facebook's settings. However there is currently no option to turn the feature off completely.

This may be the straw that broke the camel's back for many...
