Find out who hates you on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
Instead, try Qwitter. This requires your Twitter log-in and your email address, but will send you an email update, at least once a day, of who unfollowed you, and – if you opt for the paid version – after which Tweet. There’s a 30-day trial if you fancy giving it a go.
Who has blocked you on Twitter?
Although we can find no way of getting a full list of who’s outright blocked you, there’s a straightforward way to identify individuals who don’t want you to read their missives. Go to the Twitter page of the person you think might have blocked you, and attempt to follow them. If you’ve been blocked, a message will appear at the top of the screen saying ‘This user has blocked you from following them’.
Who hasn’t accepted your friend request on LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is far more straightforward in letting you know who hasn’t agreed to be a connection, although recent revisions of the site tuck the details away a little more discreetly.
Still, all you need to do is click on the Connections tab when you’re logged in. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and on the right hand side, in frighteningly small text, is a link to your outstanding sent invitations.
Note that the number that accompanies that little bit of text might not be accurate: it tends to refer only to recent unanswered invites. Clicking the link, though, will send you to the full list of your invites, dating back years if appropriate. You can, from here, withdraw your invitation.
One last thing…
Finally, a word of caution. The internet isn’t short of sites that reckon they can tell you who has unfollowed, blocked or removed you from their list of virtual chums. In exchange for this information, all they ask is for your username and password. And naturally, that should set alarm bells clanging.
Sites such as Who Followed Me? use the Oauth system that sends you back to Twitter to complete the authorisation process – the site itself is never handed your password. Be more wary of any site that demands your login details directly. Make sure you’re comfortable with the safety of the site or service in question before handing over usernames and passwords.
Now go ahead and find out who doesn’t really like you online… and be prepared to hate them forever.
