Hello guys,

Will Facebook notifications kill your Nexus 4 battery if they are on?

No, because they just periodically poll your Facebook account so see if any notifications are active. If you are concerned reduce the update frequency.

Agreed. Weak cell service, having your GPS radio continually searching (unsuccessfully), maxing out your screen brightness, and poorly written apps will all do a number on your battery before FB notifications will.
