    Hello everyone
    I've none rooted smartphone. What the way I can down FB that it will not eat memory? It wake up again and again despite of my efforts. I've checked out all needed options in settings to prevent Facebook waking up but in some time the app is working again.
    Any ideas?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Try installing Facebook lite from the play store and uninstall the regular Facebook

    That app is written in a way that you CAN'T sleep/hibernate it or anything... It pings often, records EVERYTHING you say & do, so is unable to force hibernate. If you don't use the FB app at all, you can either uninstall or disable it in Settings-Apps

    The fact of the matter is that the application does not fall asleep even if I turn off all these settings

    My only suggestion (if you actually USE IT at all) would be to try --> Greenify app.. Having a Rooted phone would be a large help/bonus for this but apparently isn't always needed. You can set apps to "hibernate" all the time, except when you're not purposely interacting with specific app. Just keep in mind that when an app is successfully in Hibernation, you won't even be getting messages or notifications until you manually wake it up yourself by using it

  7. I think FB lite is good option for your solution so use it.

    Inadvisable.. Never use a third party app for something else as they can be able to allow other unwanted entities/ppl to compromise your accounts. ..call it personal experience

    Another option is to avoid any Facebook app and just use its web interface through your browser app.

    I have removed the icon of this app from my phone and only use FB messenger to communicate with friends and clients, and it's very convenient. But I have a business page on FB, so I use this app on my laptop to monitor the work of the advertising agents I hired last month. By the way, I never thought that I would be able to get so many new clients in such a short time and I am glad that I followed my friend's advice and found the best Facebook marketing agency that deals with my business page and promotes my business in social media. So I realized that if you invest money in the services of a professional advertising agent, you will get new clients and a good profit.
