Did you know that Facebook allows you to prevent 3D photos from moving as you scroll through your News Feed? With the “Reduce Motion” setting turned on, these photos will still move as you tilt your device left and right, but movement while scrolling should be reduced. Our guide will show you how to turn this setting on from within the Facebook mobile application.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the three dots in the top-right corner of a post containing a 3D photo.

Step 2: Tap “Reduce Motion.”

To get there, tap the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right corner of the screen, tap Settings, tap “Videos and Photos” under the “Media and Contacts” section, tap “Reduce Motion” and tap the toggle to turn this setting on.
