The most recent victim of the Facebook vs. annoying application war is SpeedDate. SpeedDate, an application from the company of the same name, has disappeared from the application list, and the link to the application leads back to the Facebook homepage. SpeedDate is a web-based speed dating service that also offers a Meebo application, and until recently, a Facebook application.
Recent victims include Slide’s Top Friends (was gone for 7 days, restored this weekend), Socialhi’s SocialMe (suspended since July 1, not available yet), RockYou’s Super Wall (moratorium on viral channels), and now SpeedDate.
A recent Google search came up with a Yahoo! Answers post that asked the question “has anyone had the speed date application appear on their profile without adding the application?” There was another response that had someone saying that the same thing had happened to them. This might have something to do with the suspension, but we won’t know until tomorrow (seems to be a trend, the Top Friends application disappeared in the middle of the night as well).
Other speed dating applications (from Desidate.tv and Randomate) on Facebook have remained untouched.
