    I had been using mobile web exclusively for a while now but recently found out Facebook is forcing messager now even for mobile browser. My question is does Facebook even cause as much drain as it's been reported? Or is it just how each person sets up the app settings? Also same two questions toward Facebook messager?

    I think everyone's experience may vary. However, after reading Russell's post about this topic, I decided to uninstall the app an stick to the mobile/full-site web view using Chrome. Since uninstalling, I've noticed a slight improvement in battery life (LG G3).

    Can't "uninstall" but could "disable". I reinstalled and am gonna give it a week and see the battery hit before I decide to uninstall again though.
