Install Tasker and Secure Settings. Create a Tasker profile to use the SS plugin and freeze Facebook when the screen is turned off. Create a Task to unfreeze FB, wait half a second and the open FB app. On your homescreen create a Tasker widget to run the second task, and make the icon for the task the FB app icon.

I've done the above, and it means I can run FB on my phone but as soon as I turn the screen off the app is frozen and it can't drain my battery. I do the same for Google Maps for similar reasons.
