Facebook Unfriend Finder and Unfriending – Revisited

This was posted by the developer of the app today:
The social network asked the removal of the extension because it violates its terms.
Specifically, Unfriend Finder injects unauthorized code into the social networks’s source code in order to alter the way that the webpages are rendered in users browsers
It adds unauthorized links to users’ bookmark sections;
And posts unauthorized notifications regarding which users have “unfriended” the user or “ignored” his or her friend requests.

I cannot enforce this and will cease the developement of this Extension.
Unfriend Finder has been around for 3 years, and many of you enjoyed this, but it cannot go further.

Thank you for your support.]

FB unfriendLast week, on Facebook, I asked this question: Would you unfriend a Facebook “friend” who won’t speak to you or even acknowledge your presence in public?”  The comments reflected a wide range of feelings about the nature of Facebook friendship: Friend vs. acquaintance, mood at the time of encounter, context, setting, intentions – responses indicating that Facebook relationships, even with people you have never met IRL (in real life) can be complex and emotional.  Perhaps the best thought out comment was from my IRL friend, Roy Barnes:

 “Here’s a flowchart that I may or may not use: are they a friend or an acquaintance? If friend, try to say something to them IRL. If an acquaintance, was it a shun (not returning friendly gestures) or just narcissistic obliviousness? If former, unfriend. If latter, flip a coin.”

Last year I posted about the then new and somewhat controversial Unfriend Finder Facebook App, asking if it was somehow helpful to know who had unfriended you, or if it could be stressful or even dangerous to have that knowledge.  If you want to give the app a try, you can find and install it HERE. The app displays like this: Continue reading

Is it time to unfriend some Facebook friends?

facebook profileFacebook for me has become as cluttered as my desk drawer, packed with things I don’t use,  need to find, or just need to clean out.  On Facebook, I have friends I don’t know, have no idea of the context of the relationship, and have probably never interacted with; apps I haven’t used in over a year; and many “fan” pages I liked but can’t remember why.  Whatever your reason, you may want to unfriend some folks.

Cleaning house in Facebook is not as easy as it used to be.  There is no mass unfriending or unliking.  It’s a rather tedious process to go through almost 3000 friends, but here is the easiest way I found to cull the herd (scroll down for a short screencast): Continue reading
