How rapid is "very rapid"? Do you have Notifications enabled for Facebook? If so Facebook is updating every time any of the events you have selected occur, whether you have the app open or not. Here are the specs for the iPhone 5. See how the battery life compares to the specs:

the battery life is rated only for a few hours. so what is your definition of a rapid pace?

I experienced the same problem until I turned off most notifications, manually sign into facebook then log out.Email only loads when I prompt it. I only use some apps like words with friends on wifi. ( its a real battery killer).
Also the manual says for better battery life, let it drain fully once a month before recharging.
this should help
