I guess it depends on how much you use it.

It can, especially Facebook since it usually runs in the background and is always on, unless you close it out.

What Google app are you asking about as there are several?

Facebook can still give you notifications from the emails being pushed to your device, without it running. i.e. logged in, but menu-close out of the application.
It will not refresh status updates etc, unless its running.

Maybe its appearnce, but it seems that FB app does run a lot of data. Maybe its because i always see the "refreshing" prompt

I use facebook app everyday, checking or updating status every hour or so. I use Google serach (google app) about once or twice a day. I am logged onto to msn via beejive 24 hours a day, and read my news on viigo twice a day. With this kind of usage, I am not able to hit the 1GB mark. Hope this is a helpful comparison for data usage.
