How to See Who Unfollowed You on Facebook

Facebook has become a gossip hub lately. It seems like Mark Zuckerberg has been prioritizing the growth of the company more than user privacy. Over the past few years, we have seen Facebook go from a social media app where people could connect to a business network that connects hundreds of thousands of customers to brands. It’s also become a place where people pursue debates, participate in heated conversations, and then friend and unfriend based on their mutual views.

Unfollowed, Unfriended, or Blocked?

The first and the most important question is “has the person unfollowed, unfriended, or even worse blocked you on Facebook”? Unfriending a user on Facebook means their account will be totally removed from your feed. You can’t see their feed, follower list, and any data if you unfriend a Facebook user. It also means that you won’t get a message from this user directly, although their message request will show up in the ‘message request’ section.

Unfollowing, on the other hand, is a little different. You will still be on the person’s friend list, but you will not be shown anything they post. They can send you messages and you can see their friend list. Basically, it is a more subtle way to remove someone from your Facebook page. At last, we have the block option. You may already be familiar with this function. If you block a user, they can’t find your account in the search bar, they can’t send you a message or view your feed. They will be totally removed from your Facebook.

How to See Who Unfollowed You on Facebook

Manually checking each follower can be a lot of work. Besides, it is not a viable option for those with hundreds of friends on Facebook. Unless you have a habit of monitoring the friend’s count regularly, there is no way you can know if someone has unfollowed you on Facebook. Fortunately, there is a simple trick you can use to get updated every time a user hits the “unfriend” or “unfollow” button.

Use “Who Deleted Me” Extension

Who Deleted Me is a Facebook extension that checks your profile, so you do not have to do the manual work. You can install this extension on your Chrome and every time you log into your Facebook account with your login credentials, the extension saves your friend list. Every time there is a change in the friend list like if a user is added or removed, the app will notify you of the same.

The best part is this extension has the ability to differentiate between someone unfollowing you or someone whose account is deactivated, so you can know if the target has unfollowed you on Facebook or simply deleted their accounts. However, you need to be careful when using this app, since you are giving the extension access to all your Facebook contacts, which can be a problem for your privacy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Is there any third-party app for checking if someone has unfollowed me on Facebook?

There are tons of third-party apps that claim to show you who unfollowed you on Facebook, but they may or may not work. You should rather stick to the extensions or the manual methods. Facebook analytics tools are also used for checking the latest unfollows.

Q2: What if someone unfollows you on Facebook?

If someone unfollows you on Facebook, they can’t see your feed, check your stories, or get any updates about what you are posting on the platform. You will still be friends with this user, but your accounts will be separated.


So, these were the two easy tips for checking who unfollowed you on Facebook. Keep checking the list manually or use the extensions for getting regular updates of people who unfriend you on Facebook. Hope these tips help! Good Luck.
