A New App Helps Facebook Users Delete All Reminders of Their Ex

KillSwitchAppNowadays as much as we would like to forget pieces of our past it just isn’t that easy. Gone are the days when you could simply throw away the old cards and love letters your ex gave you along with their photos and any other reminders of them. Thanks to social media there are online photos, tweets, text messages, and other virtual reminders of a love lost. But as usual, there’s an app for that.

With a new app called KillSwitch, Facebook memories of your ex will be one less thing for you to worry about. The app deletes all traces of your ex from your timeline as part of the creator’s efforts to make “breakups suck less.” Remember the days when you (or your friend) would delete your entire Facebook account because the reminders of him or her were too much to bear?

The app essentially selects a “target” from your friend list and deletes photos of you and your ex, including ones you’re tagged in. It also deletes status updates and wall posts. If you’re more of the breakup and makeup type you don’t have to delete things entirely. Users have the option of making a “Facebook folder” of the items they wish to remove. “You can then reinstate the tags if you happen to rekindle the relationship with the person you’ve digitally deleted.”

What are your thoughts on this app? Would you pay to erase all traces of your ex from your Facebook account?
