Yes it's true. The media is just being the media. In addition, there are many articles as to why Facebook requires access to your phone, media, contacts, etc.. http://mashable.com/2014/08/11/stop-...pp-permissions

Facebook is one of those apps that kills battery life and access all kinds of data on your device. It's a little disconcerting for some. For most tech savvy users, the best and safest way to use Facebook is with your mobile browser.

Here is a nodded Facebook version that has fewer permissions http://forum.xda-developers.com
