How to Find Jerks Who Unfriend You

You know what to do if someone wants to connect on Facebook: Either accept the request blindly or discerningly choose if this person is worthy of being graced with your friendage. Either way, you’re in the driver’s seat.

But when someone “unfriends” you, that’s another story — especially if you have hundreds or even thousands of people corralled in there. How are you supposed to pinpoint the sucker who ditched you?

With Unfriend Finder, that’s how. Install this simple utility into your Facebook account, and it will sit in the menu bar, keeping a running count of contacts who’ve removed you from their Friends list. Not only that, it can even tell if you should take “the dis” personally: The script can distinguish between people who removed you and those who simply shut down his/her account. It can also identify the procrastinators who are still holding off on your friend requests and the jerks who actually cancelled them.

And, as the dev says on the “manglished” website, “If you become too depressed, you can disable notifications, or even disable the script !” To learn more or to grab the free download, click here.

Now that there’s a tool to uncover those who have denied you, will you be ferreting out the perps? Or will you just brush it off and move on?
