    This update seems to be killing my battery - it drained from 99% to 67% in less than 40 minutes.

    I just started logging out of FB when I'm not actively using it and am hopeful that will help.

    Anybody else noticing major battery drainage after this update?
    I have the Incredible and with this update I started to see my battery die after 8 hours, and that's with hardly using the phone. Last weekend I did a factory reset on my phone and have not installed the facebook update. Now I'm back to my battery lasting all day.

    did you uninstall FB first to see if that helped? or go straight to the reset?

    Most time the vast amount of battery drained is installing a lot of widgets on the device.

    I did a few adjustments... and I've seen a little more battery life.
    Turn off all Instant messAGES, Aim, etc.
    Turn off chat in Facebook if applicable.
    Turn down screen brightness.
    Yea, I know these turd battery sucks too.

    you dont really have to do all of that.

    i use beejiveIM which uses push so its gentle on the battery
    put the screen on auto brightness
    using beejive it has Fb chat in it so turning chat off in the native app is good

    this is my hobby.
    Well then I would find another hobby. If Facebook is causing you undue stress there is a problem.

    To think, what did people do before Facebook?

    Unplugged my phone this morning and checked it 11 hours later only to see my extended battery drained. I downloaded spare parts and noticed that my FB app wasnt lettng my phone sleep, it was awake since the time i unplugged it. Needless to say i just logged off from the FB app till an update fixes it.

    I can't get FB chat to close on my phone. I have closed each conversation and clicked "go offline", but once I begin chatting on FB on my computer, they pop up on my phone again. Has this happened to anyone else? I keep going offline but continue to get the alerts & messages on my phone (despite disabling all notifications). Help??

    So have FB push notifications been given up on? They never worked for my phone (and many others from what I can tell) and I never saw or heard anything out of the official Facebook for Android team.

    I have a HTC EVO, I'm not getting the push notifications when i'm logged on my account. But when I log off so that my friend can use my phone to check his fb account, he gets notifications pushed all the time. This is very frustrating how come he gets notifications pushed to my phone on his account when his using my phone, but when I'm logged on, I'm get nothing.
    So its not a problem with my phone or app, its more on fb's hope they fix this soon!!

    Push notifications recently started working for me... but now Facebook seems to cain my battery. Right now on my Nexus S, after 7 hours unplugged it is the top user at 30% (even display is only 25%).
