Most Helpful Girl
It's common for couple's to delete each other off social media. I've done it too. It's just a way out saying "It's really over" and can help speed up the healing process as you are not constantly having to deal with seeing them all happy on their social media. Unfriending doesn't make it definite. A lot can happen and change. Some couples even find their way back despite social media deleting.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

You can't really use a blanket answer for this. This depends entirely on the relationship you guys had/have/want to have.
I've had exes I've dropped, but most exes I stay connected to. It depend son how you guys broke up and your current situation.
These are generic answers but really. If you guys broke up badly, and it hurts you or hurts her to see the other moving on, and you guys know that for right now you need space and distance from each other in order to heal and move on, you should drop friends. Stop torturing each other.
On the other hand if you guys broke cleanly, and there's no hard feelings, or you think you'll be able to recover soon stay friends. Especially if you have things that are keeping you in each others lives. Say you're on a team, or in a club together or have kids or a lot of mutual friends. For some reason you're going to see each other in real life all of the time, may as well stay friend son social media.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
