By Mustaza Mustafa. Filed in Web 2.0

Checking your friends’ list to find out who unfriended you on Facebook may be a difficult task, knowing that this is almost impossible to detect without thorough sleuthing. Even if you kept a close eye on your friends’ friend-count for any decrease, you still can’t be sure if anyone has been unfriended.

Unfriend Notification

Rather than visit your friends’ profile page one by one to check, you can try the unfriend notification tool Unfriend Finder instead.

Unfriend Finder is a browser script for Facebook. Once installed, it will notify you when someone unfriends you on Facebook. The notification not only informs you of the unfriend action, but also tells you who did the unfriending.

1. Install Unfriend Finder

To install, head over to the Unfriend Finder official site, go to the download page and click on the download button to start installation.
