Why Facebook Has Changed Our Lives For The Better

"Videos in News Feed have previously played silently — you tap on a video to hear sound," read the Facebook announcement.

"As people watch more video on phones, they've come to expect sound when the volume on their device is turned on. After testing sound on in News Feed and hearing positive feedback, we're slowly bringing it to more people. With this update, sound fades in and out as you scroll through videos in News Feed, bringing those videos to life."

If this sounds like a social media world that you want no part of, then worry not, because Facebook has kindly allowed the ability to disable the feature in your settings.

Thanks, Mark.
