Facebook is one of the most popular applications for smartphones. Recently, however, the company collapsed mass charges in connection with misuse of personal data. But this flow of information unnoticed, it has been reported that the social networking app is extremely irrational consumption traffic (and, as a result, “kills” the battery). And this must have something to do. And we have the answer what.
To reduce expenditure of the traffic in several ways. Let’s start in order.
Configuring application settings Facebook
This is the first step you should take if you’re worried that Facebook is “eating” too much data. If you share lots of photos and videos on Facebook and your stream is constantly flashing different videos, the reason of the expenditure of traffic can be auto-play video. To configure it, you must do the following:
- In the Facebook app, click on menu in the right part of the screen and look for the item “Settings”.
- Clicking on it, you will see a list of features, among which will be the “load photos in HD” and “Download video in HD”. By disabling them, you will save a significant amount of traffic.
- Here you will find the option “auto play”. It also want to disable.
Settings Multimedia features in Facebook
Facebook for Android also has a built-in data saving mode, which reduces image sizes and optimize them for your device’s screen.
Go to menu settings and find the “Settings and privacy”. Here’s the point “save data”. It is something we need. It is possible to make this option off when using Wi-Fi.
Install on smartphone Facebook Lite
This is perhaps the most radical method to save bandwidth. Facebook Lite is a Lite version of Facebook, which has only most important functions (including limits the amount of incoming and outgoing data). The problem is that Facebook Lite is not available in all regions, but you can always download the APK file third-party repositories.
