    For me.. Just drains battery for no reason. Been 6 hours since charged to 100%, haven't even opened Facebook, charge is down to 75% and Facebook is 4% of that.

    So I disabled the app and using the mobile site instead.

    I had the same issue when I first purchased my phone and disabled the shop and used the mobile site. A few weeks later i started over. I disabled notifications and background refresh. Since doing that facebook has not drained my battery.

    If you really need notifications for FB but don't want the app, and want to remain using the mobile site, get Facebook Lite.

    Not sure I understand. Is there a Facebook lite app? I don't need or want notifications or background refresh.

    Yes there is, it's focused on being able to run on low end devices. However, if you don't want notifications for FB, I'm assuming you're using it for just reading?

    I suggested FB Lite because it's a much smaller app, meaning it doesn't use any battery at all unless you open it. That being said, it's not as pretty as the main app, hence why I only use it for push notifications.

    Very good. Thanks. Yeah I just want to be able to read my time line when I want to.

    I would like to delete the app but flipping through pics is different on the browswer and it doesn't give the option to save images.

    Sorry, didn't mean to go MIA. here are the steps to disable background refresh

    Settings > Data Usage > (Find Facebook in list and Press to go to next screen) > Enable "Restrict Background Data" (turn on)

    using this setting, facebook will only update your newsfeed and notifications when you open the app itself. Which works for me, because if I am not using FB I don't need it to update the app.
