Brand marketers, you may soon be able to run auto-play videos on your Facebook page without buying an ad. Some of your peers already are.

A rep for the Mountain View, Calif.-based social media giant confirmed with Adweek that the tech company is trialing the auto-play content within brand pages—running via the company's iPhone app.

Videos uploaded and posted to brands’ pages mimic the same auto-play experience that the premium-priced ad offers.
