Something about Facebook bothers me

(Well actually a lot does, but this one thing I like your input).
It seems someone has taken me off Facebook today, I honestly do not know who (Doesn't seem to be anyone I know from my church or writers group of friends if the events/group pages are anything to go by, and my family as well. So perhaps an old school friend or people who hadn't been added to those group).
Not the only incident, I think just a few weeks ago someone else took me off facebook too. Now here's what puzzles me.
I know posting a lot can annoy people, and I have done that in the past. But in the few last months my posting isn't as much anymore, maybe once or twice a week (And I haven't posted any pictures of foods in a long while, and I don't post selfies). I figured maybe that's why some people take me off, so I just didn't post much, I am surprised no one messaged me asking if I am dead. Yet someone took me off, which is strange, it's like I haven't done anything wrong at all. (Mostly just one serious post and some other random thoughts).
This weekend however I went to a Christian festival called Easterfest, it was loads of fun and I like sharing my adventures (Sue me), my first post was basically Easterfest bound, and I hadn't posted anything in almost two days, when I got home I posted pictures, made a post how nice it was and went to bed.
This morning my only post was about my computer, because it had made some alarm noise (Seems like the fan needed to be clean, all clear for now), and in reality I only made 4-5 posts (Which is still less then I used to post last year), and then my number went down to 209.
This is what I cannot fathom, it's obvious this person (Who I still don't know who it was) was so bothered of my 5 posts (Which is about the same amount of posts another friend of mine, that I went to Easterfest with posted, dunno if they knew her though) they took me off. One of the reasons I stopped posting so much was so I didn't annoy so many people, and also because I was busy with Warcraft, and Facebook doesn't seem to be exciting anymore.
But one damn weekend I make 5 posts in I think 36 hours and it's such a hassle. It's ridiculous, so because I was excited about an festival and wanted to share it (There were photos, one was separated from the others for some reason).
I know it might not be anyone I know, it may have been someone I randomly added or someone I talked to once, but it still bothers me. So I am thinking maybe I won't watch how much I post anymore, because quite frankly I shouldn't have to, it's my facebook and if someone is bothered that much and can't scroll past my posts (And which I find it hard it was even in their newsfeed, with the crap facebook keeps putting on top of one's feed only one is likely to make it).
I will post when I go Easterfest, or North Stradbroke for Writer's retreat, my Christmas, my birthday, the adventures I have in a new area I have never been to before (I am in Brisbane, Easterfest is in Toowoomba, an hour and a half away, gone there three times now in three years), I should not have to worry whether someone is getting annoyed by it.
I just like to know why this is a problem? I know it sounds stupid to vent about it, but if I know this person in real life, I never know how to talk to them, if they take me off facebook does it mean they never want to speak to me again? Am I a friend or whatever. What to do if I encounter them (I might deactive my Facebook eventually, it does feel like an popularity contest in a way, and I can't be bothered watching how much I post if it's gonna upset someone
