Friendfracker

Friendfracker is a service that automatically deletes a set of friends from your Facebook account. Upon authenticating your data on the website, the service deletes 1 to 10 friends at random. The project was developed with Harper Reed in one day for Rhizome's 7 on 7 conference.

Note: facebook disabled the API key for the project on April 25, 2013.

Q: Will friendfracker protect my privacy? A: Yes, the service uses facebook's standard authentication and security. We do not get access to your password or private information.

Q: How do I know which friends were deleted? A: You don't and neither do we, that is part of the fun and frustration.

Q: Will my deleted friends be notified? A: No.

Q: Can the damage be undone? A: No. However, you can re-friend the people if you really want.

Q: Will friendfracker keep messing with my friends? A: No. The service works on a one-time basis and will leave your data alone after.
