Stupid Facebook


This new feature that I accidentally enabled has to go. I copied the description from a news article I found while trying to research how to MAKE THIS STOP.

"Making your videos noisier is only one of the new features being introduced by Facebook today.

Top of the list is the ability to continue watching videos even as you keep scrolling, thanks to a new "picture in picture" view that will keep the video playing in the corner of your screen.

You can drag the video to any corner of the screen you want, so you'll never miss a second.

Android users will even be able to keep a video playing - even when you exit the Facebook app to do something else on your phone."

I don't want this feature but can't figure out how to make it go away. Phone is Galaxy S8

Help will be greatly appreciated

Believe it or not, that was exactly my first thought. Might go shopping for a flip phone

Re: Stupid Facebook


Facebook is a potentially phenomenal marketing tool. We have a page and are about to purchase some kind of ad space.. or "boosting"... or some crap. I don't have facebook, and I don't manage our page.

But.... it's a massive time suck (hence why I don't do it), so you've got to have someone managing that crap that doesn't have much else to do. My AA does all that crap for us.

Get your wife/kid/tech geeky relative to do it for you, and get back to returning phone calls from three weeks ago!
