Was there a point to seeking advice from members when you're not going to listen to anything we say? It sounds to me as if you've already made your mind up, in which case we won't help you.
To me, it seems as if the OP has merely turned down advice that he/his wife consider impractical or non-implementable (even if temporary) due to personal/vocational reasons, which is fairly understandable. Additionally, while I am not offering a solution myself, neither are people suggesting that the OP's wife delete her Facebook account or ridiculing the use of a smartphone on a 500MB data plan.
We keep telling you to try different things with the Facebook options in order to diagnose the problem, and you refuse to diagnose the problem ("she needs xxx feature of facebook").
Well, she also needs the phone to use less data, right?
What argument? The OP is asking (potentially) more knowledgable/experienced people for help. The situation is more akin to an individual taking their car to a garage because the indicators have stopped working properly, then having to hear some mechanics suggest either to stop driving or to stop bothering to indicate.
The entire argument is almost as ridiculous as not taking a car to a mechanic for a month because "I need to use it to get to work."

And please give me a good credible argument as to why?
You should be on a 1-2GB plan (minimum!), with any smart phone nowadays.

TBH I think the issue is clear: larger screen is pulling more date for larger images etc.
If it's foreground date is her FB use, simple. If it's background them something odd is going on.
You either accept she will use it and get stung for going over the limit, change plans (£10/1g+ a month is everywhere), increase cap w/ current plan (probably v cheap) or stop using the app. Or downgrade to a lower-res phone.
Her S3's screen is almost as large resolution-wise as my laptop's, and there's no way I'd expect to use only 300mb/month through the Facebook site.
