      ■  To check whether Facebook / Facebook Messenger is using a lot of battery,    

              Go to Settings > General > Battery > Battery usage.

We'd recommend the following changes:

2. Changing the refresh interval to 'never'

3. Change the messenger location service to 'off by default' in conversations

4. Choosing to 'not sync my photos'
