  1. Breakup Notifier Guy Makes Crush Notifier, an Anonymous Way to Figure Out if Someone Digs You on Facebook

    Shortly after his popular Breakup Notifier app got blocked by Facebook, creator Dan Loewenherz tried to "turn a negative into a positive" and released Crush Notifier, which is essentially an anonymous way to figure out if someone you dig digs you back, without all that pesky shame of being identifiable should said crush be uninterested in your e-dvances.

    Once you choose a Crush, your Crush receives an anonymous mail notifying them that someone digs them, and if said Crush chooses you back, only then will your identity be revealed, which is a common tactic that other Internet dating sites employ, and like many dating sites, people using Crush Notifier will have to purchase Crushes (the ability to send a Crush notification to someone), though in this case, with Facebook Credits. Head on over to the Crush Notifier blog for more details, including a way to obtain Crushes to hand out without spending Facebook Credits.

  2. Breakup Notifier Already Blocked by Facebook

    A couple of days ago, we reported on a new service called Breakup Notifier that provided Facebook relationship status email alerts. Well, only two days after we mentioned the creepy-but-probably-useful-to-certain-people service, Facebook blocked it. Not too long ago, Breakup Notifier had over 3.6 million users in its database, vindicating the use of all those hyphens in the previous sentence. Creator of Breakup Notifier, Dan Loewenherz, received this message from Facebook this morning:

    "To ensure positive user experiences on Platform, we run routine automated screens that take user feedback, machine learning and various algorithms into account and remove spammy applications. For example, if an application is making an inordinate number of stream.publish calls and receiving a large number of user reports, it may be removed by our automated systems to protect the user experience and the Platform ecosystem.”

    It seems Facebook is saying their blocking of Breakup Notifier is because of something other than the app essentially being something representative of negative uses for Facebook. You know, like being creepy.
