New Facebook+Messagenger update and battery drain

Hi, i have realised something today. I have been using the last facbook app and it eventually forced me to install facbook messenger. I installed it yesterday night and this morning i experienced an extremely unusual battery drain! The phone has been on the battery since this morning only for 1h45min and i have lost 14% of the battery. It was not more than 4% for a regular Sunday morning, it is even extreme for a working day morning that i use the mobile internet for 1 hour (screen is always on) + bad cell coverage and listening music all the way to work, i usually drain max 6% of thebattery. After uninstalling the facebook and messenger app then re-installing the facebook app again, the battery drain became normal.  Alright, I would like to share my experience and the  Sony staff should definitely investigate this issue, since the Facebook is committed to move all the messaging stuff to the messenger app.

Sorry to hear that, but that's a facebook issue, contact them, facebook developers, regarding this issue.
