I uninstall it from my RedMi Note only to install it back one week later.
I use it occasionally.

Now they can enhance the UI and make it so it doesn't eat 120MB+ of RAM after you close the app.

That's what I'm doing for now on. And yeah you can, just takes a tad bit longer, especially with videos.

That's what 64bit Cpu and software does. Takes and requires more Ram to run very smoothly.
I use McTweaker on the rooted Note3, along with Rohesoft Ram expander. The app let's you gain extra 3g Ram, in total, 5th Ram
The app called System Panel shows that Facebook takes up 200 mb of Ram.

Gain an extra 3GB of RAM when the max is about 2850MB... Seems legit.

they can't because it uses all that ram to siphon off your info. record your calls, random camera checks, etc..

1 of the worst major apps ever! Also apps in general have to many unnecessary permissions. There should be option to install apps with only certain permissions. For instance, Facebook app could be used without giving permission to use camera & address book if you don't want to use that feature

Well i just deleted it for good, because i can just use the mobile site. Avoid using messenger and avoid taking up my ram. Win win
