    [Blog] Feature Request for Facebook: Unfriend the Hidden
    For me, many of my Facebook friends come to me through social networks or this blog. I’d like to see who has hidden my Facebook feed so I can determine whether or not to defriend them. Currently Facebook does not allow you to see who hides your feed (or at least that I am aware of). This is an error. While Facebook wants to minimize conflict , what they are actually doing is creating dead weight on people’s social networks. When someone hides my feed they have already voted no to conversation. These people should be defriended. prefer a hyper-engaged Facebook community.
