Top Ten Reasons You Should Quit Facebook . Facebook privacy policies keep going down the drain. That's enough reason for many to abandon… But it ' s a circular justification. Once people switch to another network, it ' s useless for marketing.

But lately those warts have become too much for some, which is why there's increasing interest in finding alternativesditching the Facebook app, or leaving the service entirely.

Recently I was reminded of another reason to consider uninstalling Facebook from your phone: It's a battery hog.

I first wrote about this two years ago, and to my amazement, it seems nothing has changed: Facebook is still the no. 1 drain on my iPhone's battery, and not just by a little.

According to iOS, in the past seven days, Facebook accounted for 21 percent of total battery usage. In the last 24 hours: 24 percent. (Granted, it's a weekend, so I'm on it more.) These are my numbers, of course -- yours may vary, perhaps significantly.

Apple offers battery replacement for some MacBooks after flaws reported

  Apple offers battery replacement for some MacBooks after flaws reported Apple Inc on Friday said component failure in a limited number of MacBook Pros has caused built-in battery to expand, adding, it will offer worldwide free replacement for such batteries. Apple said the flaw, reported in some 13-inch Macbook Pros without touch bars, is not a safety issue.The affected units were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017, Apple said on its support page, without giving the actual number of MacBooks affected.

Although all of these are legitimate, there is a more important reason to quit Facebook . I’m just recognizing that, at least for right now, even if I achieved moderation I feel like it would still be holding me back from a better life.

If nothing else, it's definitely worth a look. On your iPhone, tap Settings > Battery, then wait for the Battery Usage section to load. Now check to see which app is consuming the highest percentage of your phone's juice. If you have Facebook installed, chances are good it's near the top.

If it is, you've got a couple options.

Two workarounds

Let's say for sake of argument that you don't want to quit Facebook altogether, but do want it to stop consuming so much power. You can start by disabling background app refresh and location services for the app. It's hard to say exactly how much impact that'll have on power consumption (because it depends on your usage), but it's a start.

Time to delete Facebook? How to take a social media break

  Time to delete Facebook? How to take a social media break If you are tired of stressing about your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts, this is how you step away.Maybe you've grown concerned about how these companies use your data, following the scandal involving Facebook and political firm Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook still a battery hog . Discussion in 'iOS 9' started by jsmith189, Sep 16, 2015. Very strange. And **** like this is the exact reason I hate Facebook lol. I mean, it ' s not a HUGE deal, but like

That' s enough reason for many to abandon it . Here you will find nine more: After some reflection, I've decided to delete my account on Facebook . As you'll see, there' s no reason to give them the benefit of the doubt.

To disable background app refresh, tap Settings > General > Background App Refresh. Scroll down to the Facebook entry and toggle it off.

To disable location services, tap Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Scroll down to the Facebook entry, tap it, and set the option to Never. (Needless to say, this will prevent the app from providing any location-oriented services.)

Give those two settings a try for a week or two, then check the Battery info again to see if Facebook's usage has dropped.

If not, there's a second option: Delete the Facebook app altogether. This doesn't remove your account from the service, of course, it merely eliminates a battery-sucking app. You can still access Facebook by signing in via your mobile browser.

Incidentally, that will also save you some storage: On my iPhone, the app consumes a little over 500MB. If your phone has only 16GB, that's a pretty decent chunk of space to free up.

The downside, of course, is that you'll have to live without a few app-specific amenities, like videos that autoplay (assuming you even consider that an amenity).

There's no harm in giving it a try. Ditch the app for a week or two and see how it goes. You may find that browser-based Facebook affords all the social goodness you need.

If you've already made the move, hit the comments and let your fellow iPhone owners know how it went!
