Exclamation Facebook app drain battery??

Please Login to Remove!

I have the Curve for T-Mobile. I just recently set up the facebook app. Has anyone experienced a drain in battery when using the facebook app?
I went to bed last night and my battery was more then half way charged.. when I woke up it was pretty much dead.. that has NEVER happened before.. the only thing I can think of that's different is that I'm now using the facebook app.. Would having that set up drain the battery like that? I don't get it...

I haven't had an issue with the Facebook application causing battery drainage.

No, No other programs running. It's very strange though.

The facebook app uses a little battery, but not enough to drain the phone overnight.
