Hmm does this include when I'm scrolling down NY news feed and a video automatically starts playing... Talk about wasting my mbs...

Yeah every day I scroll down my News Feed in Facebook and videos start auto-playing.... that's a trend that needs to stop now and the worst part is Facebook counts it as VOLUNTARY video playing.

Autoplaying Videos should be banned from Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome.
