Have you already disabled background app refresh for the FB app? I had this issue the first week where it was churning all night, making my phone hot. Once I disabled background app refresh, it stopped.

One thing to note, this is from at least iOS 15, if not even older but don't leave the FB app open all the time. Actually close it completely from the switcher.

Try reinstalling it then. Others have said it was fixed this way.

I know other apps were needed to be reinstalled after iOS 16 to at least get the lock screen widgets to work. Maybe this is another one of those things.
