Do we “like” this or not? ROFL
Recently, an app was yanked due to a request made by Facebook, an app developer says. The app let users know when someone unfriended them on Facebook.
“Less than a week after an app that allowed you to see who deleted you on Facebook soared to popularity, it has been discontinued, ABC News reported,” says WCVB-TV in Boston. “The developer of “Who Deleted Me” said Facebook asked him to take it down.”
Well, when Facebook speaks, we all bow down, right?
“Unfortunately, due to a request by Facebook, “Who Deleted Me” is no longer available on any platform,” confessed app developer Anthony Kuske in a statement. “Who Deleted Me was intended to be a useful tool to enhance users’ Facebook experience, but Facebook did not see it the same way.”
We’re shocked, we tell you. Shocked.
“The app, which allowed users to get a notification when they lost a friend, gained popularity last week after media attention. When ABC tested out the app, they reported it was performing slowly but eventually allowed testers to see that one had deleted another as a friend,” according to WCVB.
Seems like people really wanted to know who was ditching them on Facebook.
“Kuske said the app reached the top spot in the iOS App Store at one point last week and that the unexpected volume caused it to work slowly,” reported WCVB. “The level of traffic took me by surprise,” Kuske said. “I worked non-stop to get it back online so everybody could enjoy it.”
Kuske admitted he’s now working on non-Facebook-related projects. And Facebook did not reply to a request for comment from ABC News.
Here is where we say yet again: ROFL.
Also, how does one unfriend Facebook?
