    Help! Noticing in my battery usage that Facebook is responsible for 15%+ of battery usage!! Wtf?? I've turned off messenger location services in the FB settings as well as the Nearby friends checkbox.

    Anything else I can do short on uninstalling the Facebook to prevent this app from sucking my battery dry every day?

    This is on an unlocked HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus (just got through google play).


    Thnx!

    I am noticing the same battery drain as well. But today was my first charge. I will get back to you tomorrow.

    Are you having issues on the Youtube App, where the keeps buffering when you are on a Wifi connection?

    Have not noticed any issues with YouTube over Wi-Fi.I don't have a SIM (waiting on adapter to use my iPhone microSIM ) so I'm using Wi-Fi exclusively at the moment.

    I'm going to uninstall the FB app for a day and see how battery life improves.

    I don't use the Facebook app on Android because it's notorious for battery drainage. Stick to the touch website, it's just as good as the app IMO

    Even disabling auto updates and notifications I still had trouble. Removing FB fixed a big piece of battery problem.

    Yuck. Gave it another try today. While I wasn't using it I got a warning it was cranking my cpu. Without going into what FB may have been doing, I won't tolerate the battery hit while I'm not even using it. Removed again.
