    Tap on "Auto-play"
    .
    The default is "Smart Auto-play", and this is Facebooks best judgement as to whether we have enough data, battery life, etc., to auto-play videos on our phone.

    We can also change it to "Use Cellular Data and WiFi", "Use WiFi Only", or "Never Play Videos Automatically"
    .
    The last option would be good if we wanted to see what the content was before we are forced to watch it. We'll turn off auto-play by tapping on "Never Play Videos Automatically". We can then go back to our News Feed, and now videos will never play automatically.
