We appear to be ALWAYS on Facebook – almost like junkies – due to the app’s popularity. While Facebook’s creator, Mark Zuckerberg, is ecstatic, the rest of us aren’t always so thrilled because the software consumes our batteries and bandwidth.

As avid Facebook users, we found how to decrease data use on Facebook in order to conserve mobile data for other purposes, such as browsing Instagram (we need it for work, after all). We’ve broken the list down into parts for iPhone and Android users, as well as some general advice for both.

How to Save Data on Facebook Using iPhone

On iPhones, here’s how to save data on Facebook:

Turn off the auto-play feature on videos.

This is the simplest method to conserve data on Facebook because the auto-play feature takes up a lot of data with each video it auto-plays. To turn it off, follow the instructions below:

  • Open the Facebook app and go to the “More” menu (it is represented by three parallel lines at the bottom right-hand corner.)
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap “Settings.” A pop-up window will appear. “Account Settings” is the first option.
  • From the drop-down option, choose “Videos and Photos.”
  • Choose the appropriate option for when and how auto-videos are played. “On Wi-Fi connections only” or “Never auto-play movies” are the options. Either option is good because neither uses your mobile data.

Turn off the high-definition photo and video uploads.

We regularly share images and videos from our iPhones while on the go, and if you’re uploading them all in HD resolution, it’s easy to go over your mobile data allotment. Seriously, you don’t need a high-resolution photo or video to share with your Facebook pals, and who knows if they’ll ever view it? If you don’t want your Facebook data to get eaten up by these high-resolution images and videos, turn it off. This is precisely what you need to do.

  • Open the Facebook app and go to the “More” menu (it is represented by three parallel lines at the bottom right-hand corner.)
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap “Settings.” A pop-up window will appear. “Account Settings” is the first option.
  • From the drop-down option, choose “Videos and Photos.”
  • To disable the HD upload option, turn off the “Upload HD” buttons in both the video and photo sections.

Disable Facebook’s background refresh.

The most prevalent source of significant data problems is this. This useful iPhone function updates discreetly in the background to keep you up to speed on the newest news. News applications like Straits Time, CNA, BBC, and CNN would benefit from this. Because someone on your network uploads something new practically every second, Facebook makes significant use of the background refresh function.

To stop Facebook from downloading fresh updates every time someone adds something, follow these easy steps.

  • On your iPhone, go to “Settings.”
  • Select “General.”
  • Select “Background App Refresh” from the drop-down menu.
  • Toggle the Facebook toggle button off (you may want to go through the rest of your apps to see which ones you can turn off to minimize data usage through background refresh.)

Wi-Fi Assist should be turned off.

With newer versions of IOS, this is a handy (and covert) iPhone add-on. The main objective of Wi-Fi Assist is to help you keep a stable Internet connection. Wi-Fi Assist automatically connects your data plan when you’re on a less-than-ideal network to fill in the gaps during Wi-Fi failures.
