You might have asked this question to yourself at least once: “Who unfriended me on Facebook?“. Facebook doesn’t tell you when someone unfriends or blocks you because it would make users unhappy about the social network giant. However, it is hard not to wonder about this data. Here is what to do.
You may have come across several sites and browser extensions to find out who unfriended you on Facebook. The truth is that almost all of these services stopped working after Facebook had blocked the developer API access to the friend lists (there are exceptions for legit and enterprise companies).
After a long search, I was able to find an unfriend tracker that still works! “Unfriended by” sends you email notifications when you are unfriended or blocked on Facebook. I used ir for about a month. It works like a charm!
The sign-up process is easy. All you need to do is to go to their website. Then enter your email address and your Facebook profile URL in the form. After submitting the form, it redirects you to the payment page. Following the payment, the service starts tracking your friend list.
In my opinion, the fee they charge is worth to pay considering how helpful their notifications could be! It somehow feels good to catch those “friends” who unfriended you.
I have almost 3,000 friends on Facebook. Even if it constantly increases by the time, there are connections who unfriend me every once in a while. I have been quite curious about the reasons why people unfriend.
A survey with over 800 Facebook users shows that almost 70% of the users unfriend others if they overuse the website. About 60% of the survey participants say they unfriend people because they don’t want to hear about their romance.
11% of the survey users says that they deleted friends because they were jealous of their holidays! (not a surprising result!)
In conclusion, this is the only Facebook unfriend tracker I have found so far. If you don’t miss anyone who deleted or blocked you Facebook, check it out! Here is the address:
