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..

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
