Facebook working to squeeze silent auto-play video ads into mobile app

Facebook Mobile App Video Ads

So, you thought you could escape the coming era of auto-play video ads on Facebook by accessing the site through your mobile phone, did you? Well, you’re out of luck. Facebook announced this week that it will bring auto-play videos to its mobile app that wouldn’t play any sound unless users click on them. Although the auto-play videos will be limited to videos from users’ friends and their favorite bands at first, Facebook does say that it wants to bring silent auto-play video ads to its mobile app if they won’t degrade the user experience. Facebook has been experimenting with adding auto-play ads with full sound to users’ pages on its desktop website although it’s apparently still trying to figure out how to add them without driving users crazy.
