A new application on Facebook called the Breakup Notifier sends you an email when the love of your life who is in a relationship with someone else, breaks up.
The app, designed by Dan Loewenherz, allows users to sign up for emails informing them of when their friends' relationship status changes and it's punch line goes like this: You like someone. They're in a relationship. Be the first to know when they're out of it.
"I built a web app that alerts you when people you're interested in break up on Facebook. Typical Saturday night fun," the Daily Mail quoted Loewenherz as saying.
He also built in some 'safety' features - for instance, if someone's relationship status turns "married", the application warns them that it is perhaps advisable not to use the service.
Perfect for those who are hankering after a special someone, the app means they no longer have to obsessively check that person's status each day.
