This nifty new browser add-on tells you when someone has deleted you on Facebook
Facebook peppers you with notifications whenever someone adds you as a Friend – prompting you to write on their Facebook wall, start a conversation with them using Facebook Messenger, etc.
However the hugely-successful social network stays suspiciously quiet whenever someone removes you as a Facebook Friend.
Fortunately, there is a workaround.
A new web browser extension claims to keep you posted whenever someone removes you from their social network.
In fact, the only thing it can't do – is tell you what exactly it is you're doing on Facebook that has driven people to ditch your online friendship.
Dubbed Who Deleted Me, the lightweight app track your Facebook friends list and will notify you when somebody removes you from their social media circle.
WHO DELETED ME
The lightweight app notifies you whenever someone removes you from their social circle
The free web browser extension is available for Google Chrome and Firefox.
Login to Who Deleted Me and the app will keep a record of your current Facebook Friend list.
The app will continue to take these snapshots each time you return to the app – comparing your friends to the previous versions, and letting you know whenever there's a change.
Unfortunately, since it uses these snapshots to keep track of your Facebook Friends, the browser extension cannot provide backdated information on who has deleted you in the past.
