Unfriend Notify for Facebook Shows Unfriend Notifications & List In Chrome

For many people, Facebook is the dominant way to stay in touch with their friends, family members, classmates, colleagues and acquaintances. There would be hardly any one in your social circles who uses the internet but not Facebook. Unlike Twitter where you don’t necessarily have to follow back your followers and vice versa, Facebook still uses the classic ‘Friends’ feature, allowing users to add each other in a snap. You get a notification when someone sends or accepts your friends requests. and the list of all your friends can be viewed under one roof. However, Facebook doesn’t send a notification or inform you in any manner if any of your existing friends suddenly decides to unfriends you on the social network. That’s where the Chrome extension Unfriends Notify For Facebook comes to the rescue. As the name implies, it lets you view the list of people who have unfriended you on Facebook.

I personally don’t mind not having such a feature in place, as it helps people unfriend others on the social network without getting into any arguments over it (at least till they find out by any other means that you’ve unfriended them.) But hey, that doesn’t mean no one wants such a feature at all; in fact a lot of users would want to know who has unfriended them.

The only limitation of Unfriend Notify is that users have to be using Google Chrome. Setting the extension up is dead simple; all you have to do is download it from Chrome Web Store, and the rest is done by the extension itself.

Once the extension has been downloaded and installed, login to your Facebook account and then navigate to the ‘Friends’ section. Just next to the Friends heading, you will notice a new link called ‘Lost Friends’. Clicking this link lets you view the list of friends you’ve lost on Facebook, It also displays the total number of people who have unfriended you. To make things even more convenient, the extension also displays push notifications near the system tray when someone unfriends you, and you can temporarily disable these notifications to one hour or the whole day.

Overall, it’s a very simple extension built to perform a very specific task that has never been provided natively in Facebook. It’s available for free at the Chrome Web Store and you can download it via the link provided below.

  1. These kinds of tools have been around a long time; and Facebook, usually in rather short order, does something to disable them; and so then the makers go in and change something to make them work again; and then Facebook breaks them again…

    …and back-and-forth, and back-and-forth…

    …until, finally, whatever the dev does to make it work yet again finally breaks the browser somehow. From the comments in the Chrome web store, it’s painfully clear that that’s what’s now happened with this extension.

    I say “stay away.” The various Facebook blogs have talked about this kinda’ stuff, on and off, for years; and the consensus is that there’s no good way — at least not one that’s reliable, over time; and doesn’t eventually break the browser — to know if someone unfriends you…

    …which is exactly how Facebook wants it; and Facebook is obviously staying on top of it; and is likely better at it than any given dev.

    I say, again, “stay away.” Don’t even bother. It’s just not worth it.

  2. I haven’t installed it but looking at the reviews in the web store it doesn’t work and can mess with other sites.
