Technology sure is great, ain’t it? Evolver.fm reports on a new Facebook link that allows users to identify and subsequently purge Nickelback fans from your friends list. Your Ed Hardy-sporting coworker? Gone. Your high school wrestler ex-boyfriend? So gone, bro. This feature goes hand-in-hand with the giggle-worthy Nickelblock, which blocks any mention of the group from your computer’s consciousness. We’re living in a brave new world.
Of course, this doesn’t change the fact that the much-maligned band has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, but it’s a little victory for the anti-Nickelback set. Say, did Pat Carney come up with this Facebook feature?
