The Ice Bucket Challenge (IBC) has been wildly successful in raising money for ALS research, but the resulting videos that undoubtedly have been showing up in your news feed may be raising your data charges. Because videos are set to auto-play in Facebook. When we looked at the disabling this feature last month, you could disable when on a cellular connection, now you have the option of disabling auto-play altogether.

On an iPhone, go to Settings and scroll down until you find Facebook. Tap on it and then tap Settings. Then, tap on the Auto-play setting and choose either Wi-Fi only or Off so you don't use a big chunk of your monthly data allotment on Facebook videos.

On Android, you will find the auto-play settings within the Facebook app itself. Tap the menu button and then select settings
