    They are not running, they are just cached. By killing the apps, android will just cache them back again, thus using more battery then if you would just leave them alone

    OK, well apps like those, which are chat apps, are made to run in the background. If they arent running, they cant stay connected. If you want them to stop running in the background, then log out of them.
