Facebook says auto-play ads are coming to mobile devices

    Soon, all of the internet will be as tv was. Only we will not be able to skip commercials with our PVR’s for years to come.

  • Owen Finn

    So you had to use an auto-play ad in the story to demonstrate why everyone should switch to Google+ immediately?

  • Damien Robertson

    I don’t mind adds, I HATE the auto play ones. This actually makes me want to avoid using it.

  • Tommy Crosby

    Facebook is already one of the biggest battery/ram user on phones and they are going to make it worst and waste our bandwidth on top of that (even if you have unlimited internet at home, it still a waste of resources). Genius!

  • Gerhardt

    can they have pr0n ads?

    • J-Ro

      No, that would be too much fun.

  • thatcrazyone

    and thats the day i stop using facebook!

    • VGA Fred

      Yes, maybe this will finally be the straw that helps me break my stupid addiction to that site!

    Autoplay ads.. Rip facebook
    the most annoying idea ever!! I personally, immediately close any website that autoplays music or video’s. without my input.. Thankfully im not a facebook user. how much punishment will sheep take before they move along?

  • Savbers

    Well there goes my Facebook account. Bye forever!

    Uninstalling as soon as this is implemented.

  • sicsicpuppy

    WooHoo ! time to finally delete .

  • Cristian Tane

    So if you’re not using wifi at all, you’re safe? 🙂

      It will use data. Because they don’t want a loop hole to hurt the impression count. It will likely take as much data as vine or instagram video in the near future. The first set of video ads are going to be a beta test to see how well they are received and how they can make them stick.

    Nice! Another reason NOT to use Facebook.

    this is turning into a medium for ads, the social media aspect is getting buried under all this crap they are tossing over it. Pretty soon its going to be all ads all the time, people talking about ads, instead of exchanging pictures, they’ll be exchanging ads with each other, thumbs up to ads! Let’s just look at ads all day and be done with it.

    And, Facebook is now uninstalled….

  • Apocalypso

    More unwanted intrusion from Facebook. Great. I guess I’ll be one of many who will be uninstalling Facebook as soon as this feature is implemented.

  • Farhan Chaudhary

    I would rather pay and get an ad free experience than to have it free and have ads. Ridiculous idea! I hate ads.

  • Wild

    Breaking News: facebook continues to suck.

  • Nytetyme

    As long as there’s an AdBlock filter for it, I’ll be ok with it lol

  • B-Mac

    guess I’ll finally see what Google+ is all about now then….Twitter and Google+ from now on if this crap is coming

  • BetelgeuseOrion

    i dont see a single add on my android in any application with Ad-Away, 🙂

  • Garrett Cooper

    Glad I rarely use FB as it is. But when this starts, it’ll be uninstalled, and I may say screw it and close my account too.

  • AReid

    Bye bye Facebook friends.
