    Default Facebook app causing wakelocks / battery drain

    I've disabled all notifications in the Facebook app and the Facebook messenger app. Yet both apps, if I go to see running processes in the settings, have 3 or 4 services constantly running. For example Facebook has EventService, Mqttpushservice, BackgroundDetectionService etc and Facebook messenger has similar services just running in the background. Why are they running, what are they doing and why is this happening even though I've disabled notifications? Surely some of you out there can reproduce this...

    This seems to be a perennial issue with the Facebook app, but most importantly just how is it affecting your battery?

    Although you've turned all notifications off, have you re-set the refresh rate? The app seems to cause a lot of problems for a lot of people which is why I uninstalled it a long time ago due to heavy battery drain. I'm not a particularly heavy Facebook user so I use the browser version with any notifications coming through via email which suits me fine, and frankly I'm glad I got rid of it.

    hmm, okay. It's kind of useful though and I want to keep using it. Yeah I reset the refresh rate. It's just confounding we can't have these apps on our phones to be quiet except when we're using them. They are just programmed to keep sending and receiving data no matter what you set them to.

    I also took the Facebook app off of my phone (Battery Draining). As Sissers says, Im glad I did. I do however have the Facebook Messenger running. The battery use is acceptable and I actually use it to stay in touch with family and friends. It sure would be nice if Android, Apple and Windows would all come out with a Native app .... Or if all users on all operating systems would all install one app that works on all operating systems.... Like Whatsapp or something similar. We could all avoid paying the texting fees that can be exorbidant on some networks.
