If you’ve ever been curious why your Facebook friend count was down, there’s now an app that tells you who exactly unfriended you.
It works by simply saving a copy of your friend list after you first use Who Deleted Me.
When you revisit the app or browser extension, it will then compare your current friend list to the saved version — which unfortunately means you can’t see who unfriended you back in 2012.
It will then give you a list of who stopped being your friend on Facebook as well as any new friends since the last time you were logged on.
Both the app and browser extension will separate if you were the one to delete a friend and if someone merely deactivated their Facebook profile. Here’s a mock up of what the app looks like:
The app and website became so popular this week that the website began running slower on Monday and eventually suffered some outages. Who Deleted Me has since said it has updated to bigger servers to cover the increased traffic.
Website outages aren’t the only concern for the new app. Back in February, the app’s creator Anthony Kuske received a notice from the Facebook Team telling him that his app and browser extension were creating a negative user experience.
But currently, 36,000 people have liked the Who Deleted Me app page on Facebook and counting, so there’s obviously a marketplace for it.
The app is not the first of it’s kind. There’s been a browser extension since last year called Unfriend Notify that has roughly the same service, and there’s also a Twitter version called WhoUnfollowedMe? as well.
So the next time you’re debating unfriending your aunt who sends all those FarmVille requests, now you might want to think twice.
