    Is this normal? 8hrs of background activity seems like a huge amount to me. Anyone else experiencing this? Thanks

    I deactivated my Facebook account a couple of years back, I believe, and therefore I do not know. Still, it wouldn't surprise me if the mentioned activity was indeed true.

    Turn off background App Refresh for Facebook.

    My girlfriend has her background app refresh on and her Facebook only used 1hr background in the same period of time.

    Are you leaving Facebook in the background, or going into multitasking and shutting it down?

    I leave it in the background. I don't ever close anything actually. Would closing it out keep it from refreshing in the background?

    Just toggle refresh off for Facebook.

    For me, regardless of background refresh on or off, it was still counting as usage in the background. Once I turned off notifications for Facebook, it seems ok now. No longer using a crazy amount in the background when I check it under battery.

    Anyone have any idea why Facebook notifications are so spotty? No matter how I tweak it I am always missing comment notifications. Only if I open the app do I see them. For some reason they just won't come to my lock screen and notify me there. I have toggled things off and on and tweeked every setting possible.

    Do you have notifications set in the phone's Settings as well as in the Facebook Settings? Check both just in case.

    My notifications are spotty at times as well! And as for the app using crazy battery in the background, that happened to me yesterday. My battery drained quickly. But it was only yesterday, my phone was fine with regular fb use before and it seems fine today too...

    Though I do use FB a fair amount and always prefer notifications, I uninstalled the app a while ago in favor of a Safari bookmarklet. Safari NEVER works in the background

    Spotty here as well ... but to be honest, I don't really need the extra distraction.

    Indeed. I log into the mobile website, check and I'm gone. But because it's football season I do post more and interact more so I have text notifications on until after the Super Bowl ha

    Facebook admits to a battery drain issue with background activity. They're working on it.

    Having the same issue as everyone else, I decided to uninstall the app completely and use an alternative called Paper.

    I still get the feed, the ability to update and not all of the notifications that I wasn't really paying any attention too.

    Might be worth it as a substitute until the official app is fixed.
