There should be a feature to show you how much data each app is using over that time period. There is on my Android phone. From there you might be able to figure things out.

no such thing as unlimited LTE data plans in Canada. The only cell companies who offer unlimited data are the bargain ones with super slow data.

Here's 10 pages of complaints from Fido customers, but no real solution. This goes back to 2010?

Your data depends on the apps you have continuously running in the bg, it's quite possible you've added new apps since you've switched over? Facebook per your example is likely refreshing often, go to the options and change the refresh interval timing or turn it off completely, do this with twitter as well.

You should also connect yourself to a wifi network while at home or at work which would prevent most of that usage.

I've also heard that those videos people post on FB that auto run when you're scrolling chew up large chunks.
