Facebook Is Going To Ruin Your News Feed With Auto-Playing Video Ads

Facebook Is Going To Ruin Your News Feed With Auto-Playing Video Ads | Education Revolution | Scoop.it

In Facebook's quest to generate more revenue, it's going to muck up your News Feed with auto-playing videos, the FT reports.

Sage Osterfeld's curator insight, May 8, 2013 11:45 AM

Facebook taking a queue from porn sites. Great.

 

Is there anything more annoying that an autoplaying ad that you don't care about ruining whatever it is you're doing? Every time I run across one, it's usually below the scroll where I can see it so I'm like, "where the hell is that noise coming from?" (Then I scroll down and find the ad playing, right click on it and use my Ad Block plugin to keep that server from ever showing me an ad again.)

 

Elliottsweb's curator insight, May 23, 2013 10:49 AM

Oh no! Not more auto-playing ads!

"There is no Nebraska algebra or Virginia reading. 

 

There is little disagreement about what constitute good outcomes in reading writing and math, yet by allowing the states to define those outcomes, place them willy-nilly in different grades, and test for them idiosyncratically we put students in a mobile society at a great disadvantage."

Lori Wilk's curator insight, February 2, 12:08 AM

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.
