Facebook is testing a persistent notification status bar on Android

Another service from Facebook that causes battery drain.

Oh hell no!! If they do this, I'm totally uninstalling FB from my phone!

I don't think the FB target audience is smart enough to find the setting. I actually don't think they would care.

I like this idea more than being forced to use G+ for routine things.

lol, G+ can be easy disabled...and, it works better than Facebook - less settings, updates me whenever I get a reply or someone in a circle post something...Facebook? Does not...

But again this is not a Google plus post

I never use the facebook app. I just open the browser.

true, easy to do on most Android devices...

I do the same thing..Better bookmark and keep it on Home screen.

There better be a way to turn this option off, otherwise Facebook will lose an app user. I hate having things in my notification bar to the point that I wish I could get rid of the keyboard options when typing.

They want so bad to be a constant and annoying part of our lives.

I don't use fb at all so no matter to myself.
Nothing more then a digital STD imo.
Hopefully a cure is found soon.
Shy of a solar flare.

Here comes another flop. How many people actually even use THE WIDGET? Nobody wants "persistent constant" Facebook! A redesigned Facebook widget that shows pics, thats all they need for now, and then work their way up.

I would definitely not want this feature. I'll make sure to shut it off. Whatever I need from facebook, I'll get from the app itself.

They are renaming it to, "In Your Facebook."
