Default [Q] Samsung Galaxy App drained battery?

I had I think about 80% Battery last night and went to sleep. Normally I only get about 5% to 10% drain when I sleep from notifications and things syncing which I am fine with. However I woke up and it was at 20%. I went into the battery settings to see what was draining it and it said Samsung Galaxy 40% stay awake for 5h 37m. and recieved data 130 mb and sent 4.52 mb which I have never seen that come up on the list of things using my battery before, and why would 130mb take 5 hours to recieve. I am attaching a picture as well of my screenshot. I am totally confused. There was no update on my phone ota either. I was on wifi the whole time since I was home.

Are you using the original battery that came stock with the phone or using a different battery? May be the issue here...

Also this is the first time anything has drained my battery like that on this. I had an s4 before this one and never had this happen. Almost all same apps. Only added a few calender ones the days before this happened but they aren't even showing on battery use.

Well its showing up again. By this time tonight usually I have 75% battery life. Today it's at 63% doing the usual stuff with Samsung Galaxy using 10%. I really don't want to have to reset but this is becoming a problem.Click image for larger version

Seriously does anyone know what this app is and if it's OK to turn off. I really need to know what's going on and it's hard to Google cause it comes up with every page that says Samsung Galaxy.

I froze that app and 120+ other random things I don't want.

edit to add this app is Social Networking Service so all that background happenings is from facebook, etc.

If it is connected to Facebook why would it be showing up now? It's not interfering with my Facebook since I turned it off and I never have had anything with Facebook drain my battery like that. I am glad I haven't seen anything not work on my phone since I turned it off but I was still having some sudden battery drain all of a sudden. I am really confused. This never happened on my s4 and I have had this one over two weeks and it just started happening. I am not using the phone any differently.
