How to find out if someone unfriended you on Facebook

It hurts, but if you REALLY need to know…

THERE ARE LOTS of sites that allow you to see who has unfollowed you on Twitter.

Spotting who has done the same on Facebook has, to date, been trickier. And to be honest, it’s probably not something many of us want to know, considering that Facebook tends to be used for people we consider to be friends and not the wider public, who we might not have met.

In other words, it’s hard not to take a defriend/unfriend personally on Facebook.

But if you must know, a new browser extension makes it easy to find out who has kicked you off their Facebook friends list.

It’s called “Unfriend Notify” and it works for Firefox and Chrome.

Here’s how it works on Chrome. Get ready, it’s incredibly simple.

Visit here and click Free. This will begin the extension download:


Then click Add:


Then you can visit Facebook. In your friends list, a new tab will appear called “Lost Friends.” It will show you the people who have unfriended you since the last time you clicked the tab.


We’re not sure we want to know when a friend unfollows on Facebook – it’s more personal than Twitter, isn’t it? – but for those who do, now you can.
