Facebook took down the app that showed who unfriends you

Finally people had an application to see who unfriended them on Facebook, it seems its what people want to know – but Facebook didn’t like it and Facebook took down the app that showed who unfriends you.

So, why did Facebook ask for it to be removed?

The app was called “Who Deleted Me” and was available on iOS other mobiles and had extensions for browsers such as Chrome was created by Anthony Kuske. The app went viral last week and Anthony worked hard to be able to handle all of the traffic.  Only it seems that maybe it didn’t comply with Facebook’s terms of service, and I didn’t use Facebook’s new API so Facebook got rid of it.

Anthony says on the website

Dear users,

Unfortunately, due to a request by Facebook, Who Deleted Me is no longer available on any platform. If you have a Who Deleted Me browser extension or application installed it will no longer function.

Who Deleted Me was intended to be a useful tool to enhance users’ Facebook experience, but Facebook did not see it the same way.

Never did I expect it would achieve the level of popularity it did over the last week, from being mentioned all over the media to being number 1 in the iOS App Store. Thank you to everybody who installed it and for your patience while the servers were improved to handle all the traffic. The level of traffic took me by surprise and I worked non stop to get it back online so everybody could enjoy it. By Thursday it was working well for everybody so I hope you had a chance to use it before now.

According to MTV NEWs

“All developers building apps that integrate with Facebook, requesting information about people, must use a Facebook API, which ensures that people maintain control over who is accessing their information,” a Facebook spokesperson told MTV News. “We take action against any app that violates our terms and policies.”

There does appear to be many apps or programs that claim they give tell you who unfriended you on Facebook or Who looked at your Facebook profile – but these are probably not secure apps and we would advise you to steer clear of them.

If you really want to know who unfriended you on Facebook, you’ll just have to look them up one by one, we say live and let live and don’t worry about it.
