Facebook Breakup Notifier app is closed

This was an application that allowed you to select Facebook friends and then receive notification by mail when the friend became single. It was one easy way to track the status of your love interests.

However, TechCrunch announced that the application was closed by Facebook.

Breakup Notifier managed to attract about 100,000 visitors in just 24 hours after its launch. Until the moment it was shut down, it had reached the incredible figure of 3,673,484 visitors.

Meanwhile, things have been clarified and it seems that the app wasn’t blocked manually, but by an automatic script integrated into Facebook. Oddly, in addition to blocking the application, the account of the one who had that created it (Dan Loewenherz) was also shut.

A comment from Facebook officials is still awaited.
