I have a friend on my facebook that i speak to quite often but a couple of days ago she disappeared from my friends list and all the messages she sent me were in my inbox but her name was no longer a link and her picture had gone.

Some may say she has deleted me but i have spoken to her about it and she says she hasn't and since then i have made a few new facebook accounts and added her but she keeps disappearing and when i search for her she doesn't excist apparently.

I have a feeling her facebook account has been hacked and the hacker keeps blocking me but when she searched for me on her friends list i wasn't there so i tried a little test, blocked one of my friends but they were still on my friends list.

Anyone know what's actually going on here?

Thanks in advance

The exact same thing keeps happening to me too. A good friend from overseas (UK) disappeared off of my Facebook list. When I added his daughter, her profile disappeared off as well. The link to their names no longer exist and profile picture is gone as well. It all started when the new Facebook design came about.

This has happened to me too today. I went to type in my friends name using the search bar and she didn't appear. I eventually found her but it said 'add as friend' on her profile. I have messaged her to see if she has deleted me, although there is no reason why she would have. However, in my news feed she pops up as one of my friends as changing their profile picture.

Same here :( My best friend has disappeared off Facebook and I highly doubt she has deleted me. When I type her name in the search bar, she doesn't come up. It says "No results found for ....."

some thing..my little cousin asked why i don't post things on her FB anymore and I told her she isn't on my friends list. I'm on hers, but when i search her I can't find her at all...and all the tagged photos and wallposts have disappeared as well...I've even changed my privacy settings to everyone and still nothing. My Gf has her added and has no problems viewing...but even in the Mutual Friends List, I still can't view.....this is quite odd and has been a problem for a few months now....

This is weird then, I have a friend who on occasion deactivates his account. Recently he deactivated it yet his name still shows up in a search. It gives me option to add as a friend or send message, click on either and on his name, it tells me the link is invalid, then in afew hours the name disappears completely. Funny thing though he still is tagged in a picture on my album. I'm pretty sure he goes on late at night for a while then deactivates the account afterwards.
Or maybe he did delete me! lol Ofcourse facebook never replies directly to you for any problems or questions, so hopefully someone here can answer this.

I have had about 5 friends disappear, people are not mad at me! I can't imagine that 5 people unfriended me. I am going to friend request some of them and see what happens.

I'm hearing that this is because of viruses & spyware. Makes alot of sense considering we know these people didn't just delete themselves.

The same thing happened to me!! But only to my friends that don't live in the US. I recently added these two people that I met and they both live in a different country. All of the sudden, when I went to find one of them, they were gone. I am very angry. This sucks!

Facebook needs to fix this imo. That has been happening to a whole lot of people, and to me as well recently.

This has also happened to me ,


Even though they say its not a bug , They are obviously wrong.


OR make a page and make Facebook take notice , because they treat their users like SHIT...

I have a friend from Dominican Republic, we've been chatting for more than an hour until she told me that she's about to log out and talk to me later. During that time i was still looking at her pictures but when i click one of those pictures, there was a note saying the picture cannot be seen temporarily/account temporarily unavailable, so what i did, i went off and restart to log in, i was shocked when i saw that her name disappeared from my lists, i searched her name in the search bar but i could not find her. It happened to me twice, the first time, i thought she deleted me but i was wrong, the following day, i just saw her name again in my list and start chatting again. The second time, she disappeared again unfortunately as of this complaint, i still can't find her. what's happening people?

Happened to me too =/. To two of my friends who were not in the US. I agree I say people complain that facebook needs to change it now.

i get poked by a friend but when i go to send a message or look for their profile, they are not there. They tell me they still have an account and can see me. I think the new security features are buggy.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
