Defriendtion LLC today introduced Defriendtion, its first-of-a-kind app for Facebook that allows users to express their dislike of friends’ annoying activities or posts. Evoking memories of dreaded school detention and delivering what Facebook users have requested for years – the much needed 'dislike' button, Defriendtion is the ultimate cyber spanking for anyone that deserves a bit of a timeout! Defriendtion is available for free at: http://apps.facebook.com/defriendtion/
“For everyone who wants to be able to ‘call out’ their friends for their annoying and sometimes questionable activities, Defriendtion is the perfect way to let that person and all your friends know about it”
Whether a silly or inappropriate picture, a tweet, or a status update, everyone has friends or is associated with an entity who does questionable things both online and in-person – the “culinary snapper,” the “needless quoter,” the “unnecessary hash tagger,” etc. The only way to previously express disdain for these actions, however, was by writing something in the 'comment' section of a post, or by re-tweeting with commentary.
Now, with Defriendtion, users can voice their disapproval of these activities in an organized way by filling out a simple Evidence sheet, which allows them to insert links, quotes, words and photos. It’s perfect for showing just how much a user is irritated by placing them in “Defriendtion” for a certain number of hours.
When a friend is placed in Defriendtion, the act is shown on their wall and timeline, as well as the newsfeed and ticker of both parties involved - for all of their friends to see (based on their Facebook privacy settings). Users can also connect Defriendtion to their Twitter account, and with just one click, the user’s “call out” will be seen by all of their Twitter followers, easily spreading news of the infraction.
“For everyone who wants to be able to ‘call out’ their friends for their annoying and sometimes questionable activities, Defriendtion is the perfect way to let that person and all your friends know about it,” said Chris Heller, CEO and creator, Defriendtion.
