    Hi, I've got a sprint galaxy note 4 and whenever I back out of facebook, it's still showing in my active application. Most of my other applications will go away and not be running in the background. I haven't saw any significant battery drain as well.

    If it's not impacting the phone's performance or battery life, don't worry too much about it. Remember that Android prefers to keep RAM relatively full of open apps--closing apps manually will only lead to the system opening apps again on its own. See these articles:

    Facebook used to constantly run in the background on my phone and I would lose battery from it. I actually just yesterday uninstalled facebook and installed Fast

    Faebook may show up as active, but that's not really correct.

    Facebook runs, but as a service-only process. IOW, it sits in memory, kinda idling but barely doing anything, waiting for instructions or for something to happen such as a new message. Much like an email app or messaging app.

    Working properly, Facebook shouldn't be a heavy hit to the battery. That said, it does tend to use a little more power than email or messaging apps.

    I'm only speaking from personal experience. I find I lose less battery if I use a facebook client like Fast than the actual facebook app but that's just from my experience

    Well, like I said, *working properly* it's not a heavy hit to you battery. Problem is Facebook is notorious for not always working properly.
