How To: Tell When Someone Deletes (Unfriends) You On Facebook

UPDATE: http://www.saltywaffle.com/who-deleted-me-facebook-twitter/

I am warning you, what I am about to teach you may give you information you think you want to know, but actually don’t. While there are all sorts of scams out there promising to tell you who is visiting your Facebook the most and other bogus apps like that, this is a little different, mostly in that it actually works.

You will never be able to tell who is looking at your Facebook, it’s just impossible, but with the use of some scripts and simple add-ons you can monitor your own friend list to detect changes. This allows you to know when a person is no longer in your list of friends. The reason for that could be one of many, not just that they hate you and deleted you.

They may have…

  • Deactivated their account
  • Been removed by you
  • Have blocked you completely
  • Or…they actually did delete you as a friend.

So, if you are prepared to know when one of these changes happen, here is how to get set up in each of the major browsers. Be careful though, it may leave you with more questions than answers. I found that I wanted to know whether or not they actually deleted me, just deactivated their account, or blocked me. Then I started wondering what I could have done wrong…it could lead to a vicious circle so just be ready!

  1. Google Chrome: My browser of choice and the best for just so many reasons has it’s own little extension available in the gallery for a painless install. You can find that extension here, it has worked perfectly for me for the last two weeks.
  2. Internet Explorer: If you are using IE and aren’t forced to, I’d really consider a new browser. If you want to know why, email me personally at mitchell@saltywaffle.com and I’ll convince you why you shouldn’t be using it. Anyway, in the case that you love it or can’t change, there is a script that runs a Friend Checker for Facebook using a Greasemonkey add-on. (Don’t worry if you don’t know what that means.) Just go here first and install that package, then go here and install this one, second. The order is important!
  3. Firefox: Firefox is another great browser and works by using a Greasemonkey add-on in combination with a script. To install the friend checker install the Greasemonkey package first and then go here to install the script. Like IE, make sure you do it in that order.
  4. Safari: Now if you are one of my dear friends unfortunate enough to be stuck on a mac and for some reason love Safari (jk, my apologies), I got something for you too. Install this kit here to allow scripts and then install the script from here. If it doesn’t work, just wait. :)

With that I will leave you to your own demise, install carefully and be prepared to start second guessing every Facebook friend change that happens. Don’t drive yourself crazy! (If you are having trouble with any of the installs above, you may try this app, but be aware that it has access to portions of your profile.

    who.deleted.me is currently having technical difficulties, the login wont work, is there any timetable as to when who.deleted.me will be working properly again?

  • http://www.saltywaffle.com Mitchell Cuevas

    Hard to say, that’s one of the reasons I personally try and stay away from some of the built in FB apps-you just never know when Facebook is going to take them down or change something that breaks their app. The browser install works no matter what, but if I hear anything about who.deletes.me I will gives you a heads up. Thanks for reading!

  • Robert

    Ok, no problem

  • Dom

    Is the script (facebok friend checker – greasemonkey) not working? It hasn’t been informing me of who has deleted me, but I know people have. It worked until a couple days ago.

  • http://www.saltywaffle.com Mitchell Cuevas

    I believe the script is working still, I haven’t had any issues with it. If you let me know what browser you are using, I can look at it and see if I have any problems. Maybe a quick uninstall and reinstall would do the trick? Let me know and I’ll take a look. Thanks for reading! :)

    So once you install the script in firefox, how do you tell when someone defriends you?

  • Mitchell Cuevas

    Once it is installed all you do is wait. The next time someone removes you it will pop and let you know at the top of your screen.

    I’ve been using chrome for my facebook and using this script. As of late, the script hasn’t worked at all and I’ve lost few friends so I can’t tell who it is. Chrome is updated currently. I uninstalled and reinstalled the script but no luck. Is it due to FB’s new layout? Any tips on fixing this issue?

  • http://www.saltywaffle.com Mitchell Cuevas

    Yeah I have noticed since the new layout that the script hasn’t been working. Will update when I find a solution.

  • http://www.saltywaffle.com Mitchell Cuevas

    So I’ve been looking around and can’t seem to find an updated script. I’m guessing that a change on Facebook with how friend lists are stored is responsible for it being broken. I’m going to see if I can find someone to fix it and I’ll update this page. 

    For now, http://who.deleted.me/ is working great. Try it out and see what you think.

    Hey the updates to Facebook broke the script. Until that is fixed, try out who.deleted.me. It has been working fine for me for about a week now and has notified me of every friend list change. 

    Here is a link to the details http://www.saltywaffle.com/how-to-tell-who-deleted-you-on-new-facebook-update/

    Hi, is it possible to see who has unfriended you on facebook? I started using the Greasmonkey today, but would like to know when has my friend deleted me (it muss be less than a month ago, but would like to know the exact date)? Thanks

  • Mbtaforum

    Yeah by using who.deleted.me and checking it every 24 hour or so, which I do every morning, to see who dropped me as a friend or added me the previous day (including your adding and removal opf friends too)

  • Don Cook

    I am using  http://www.facesoftware.com who deleted plugin

    This plugin basically allows you to know who deleted or unfriended you on facebook as soon as it happens.

  • Dan

    is there a way where it wont show up on the news feed?

  • Guest

    WHY R U honestly SUCHa “saddo”? … IF sumone deleted you/unfriends U, shouldn’t U just accept it + move on with life? Or maybe even GET a LIFE?….WHO cares….IF someone deleted them?…. me thinks U need to mooooove on….& quit worrying about WHO deleted you…

  • Vivek

    that’s more easily told than implement. You might think so you have so many friends. When someone is left alone, then someone deleting you hurts a lot.

  • Cabazorro

    Is it possible to know WHEN somene blocked/deleted you, PRIOR to installing any app or script? I mean. I want to know the exact date when someone unfriended me, but all scripts and extensions work only from the day you logged in and forward…
    Tks
