Facebook tries to notify you for everything on your account – friend requests, wall posts, comments, tagged photos … the list goes on. However, there is no such notification for someone who “UNFRIENDS” you on Facebook. Well at least through Facebook that is! What you say Zo? That’s right, users of Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari and Internet Explorer can use free scripts to have this information delivered natively (so to speak) in their Facebook session.
So how does all this happen? Check out the photos below with their captions. And of course these photos only show instructions for the two best browsers – Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. But no worries for the rest of you, it’s available for the other browsers as well. So if it’s worth that much to you, check it out and let us know what you think.
The Unfriend Finder by Edouard Gatouillat can be found on Userscripts.org. If you're using Chrome, it will install automatically.
Firefox users will have to first install the Greasemonkey add-on.
Once installed, you'll see two new features in Facebook. There will be an "Unfriends" tab on the top-right of your screen and an "Unfriends" option in your "Favorites" list. When someone unfriends you, a red number notification will appear above the "Unfriends" tab.
The script also displays the unfriend info on your main "Notifications" tab.
The information will also be displayed if you click on the "Unfriends" option in your "Favorites" list, where it also provides the date and time you were unfriended.
As well as telling you who unfriended you, the script will also alert you if someone you were friends with deactivates (and re-activates) his profile.
Finally, use this script to keep track of friend requests. It will show your pending requests, and give you info on who has ignored, or cancelled your request.
