He's an ex. Removing each other from each other's lives, especially social media is not uncommon, especially if one person decides it's an easier way to move on without the constant reminder.
Besides, while he's your ex, why do you worry so much whether or not he's still on your Facebook? Is there a reason you need to have access to him on social media to see what he's up to or for him to see what you're up to?
Facebook deleting seems to be the new age insult, and frankly I'm surprised that people still question why people come and go off their social media pages, especially when they are no longer really active in your life anymore. I can understand deletions made because there was a fight with no chance of reconciliation, if someone becomes your boss and they need the privacy, and breakups. Usually those three don't even need the explanation! I would wonder if there are sudden deletions made between friends or relatives when there seemed to be no cause for action.
Otherwise, exes don't need to be buddies anymore. Maybe it's because I'm 40 and don't get how people in their teens and 20s think it's important, but to me, it's the past, and the person is gone. I don't mean that you need to be enemies, and can't say hello if you happen to see each other, but this whole Facebook stuff about keeping the friend count up or needing to be in contact is not really warranted. Also, the next guy you date will thank you for not keeping him on your friends list as new loves usually like to think you've moved on and don't need the reminder of having an ex hanging around on your page.
