Substantial data usage increase

I have an iphone 5 and 2 gigs of data on my plan. I always used about a gig so I had more than enough data. The last month or so my usage is out of control and I can't figure out why. I'm 13 days into my billing cycle and I've used 1500 megs of data. The only thing I can think of is the Facebook video thing - but I would never have guessed that it could possibly eat up that much data.

You can turn off the auto play video (or WiFi only) in the FB app settings.

Settings>Cellular Scroll to the apps section. Here you can see which apps are using data. You can also disable certain apps from using data
I've actually noticed the same thing and I'm on a prepaid plan. It usually happens after I top-up for the month and then I get a text notification saying I've used 95% of my data!
