Social networks like Facebook help people connect, but sometimes, those connections go bad. Joseph Grenny, co-author of New York Times best-seller Crucial Conversations, conducted an online survey about hostility on social networks and got some surprising results from the 2,698 respondents.
Facebook users who are disappointed that the social network hasn’t given them a way to see who has unfriended them can remain disappointed with Facebook if they like, but browser script Unfriend Finder, by Edouard Gatouillat, can provide the information they are looking for.

On Tuesday, Dennis Harrison released a new iPhone application that lets Facebook users view those friends who’ve recently removed them as a friend.

Since launching on Tuesday, Facebook has gone ahead and disabled the application.
