    Press Alt+Shift+H and post the "File Free" amount here.

    It is liekly that your running low on memory. I know facebook has been giving people alot of problems with memory leaks, my self included.

    What you can do for now is uninstall facebook and do a battery pull. See if you device improves over the next few days and if it does then it was probably facebook that was causing the problem.

    You can also reinstall facebook if anything later on.

    5mb, don't save any media to your device. Facebook has been a big issue as of late. I would just avoid it.

    I've noticed the same thing on my curve. It started happening after I upgraded to 4.5. It's not too bad, but yes, that hour glass appears more than it did before. I think it has something to do with the upgrade.
