Do You Want To Know Who Defriended You On Facebook?

Hey! Were you having a pretty good day? SO GOOD that you were thinking “Hey, there must be something around to bum me out–but what?” Well, have I got news for you! With a new app called “Who Deleted Me?” you can now see who has defriended you on Facebook, so that you may drive yourself crazy for a few hours wondering what you did to make someone dislike you enough to not want to be your friend anymore without telling you!


Sounds like fun! And it’s available for free on Android and iOS, and as a Chrome extension. Perhaps because it would be cruel to make people pay to be disappointed?

I mean, sure. I totally use the Friend or Follow thing on Twitter in order to see who unfollowed me on there, so that I can be petty as fuck and unfollow them back if I happen to also be following them. It’s uh, a once a month habit that I admit is probably less than helpful. I never feel good after doing this.

But most people on Twitter? They don’t actually know me, personally–whereas most people on Facebook do. I would imagine I’d feel a lot more hurt if it were people I know going around defriending me without telling me why.

I mean, I have only actually ever “defriended” two people ever–one who started saying some anti-Semitic shit, and another who said something bitchy to me about one of my friends. Fairly serious things and they both know what they did. On the occasions that I have been defriended and have found out about said defriending, it’s been a hit to the gut. Even if it’s just an acquaintance, I end up driving myself crazy to find out what I could have done.

I’m not sure if I’d want to know who defriended me whenever someone did. On the one hand, I feel like it would be a little upsetting and kind of a constant downer if it were happening more than I realized. On the other, I kind of want to know who people are and if they dislike me so that I don’t make a fool out of myself thinking we’re friends. This is an oddly big fear for me.

So, I don’t know. I’ll have to give it some thought. Maybe I’ll try it out and then delete it if it is too crazymaking. What do you think?
