Judge removed from divorce case after sending one party a Facebook friend request

Judge removed from divorce case after sending one party a Facebook friend request.  Is this ex parte?  I'm not sure, but I would argue it on appeal.  This is good lawyering by the appellant here because this is clearly an issue.  The issue is whether a friend request is ex parte.  I always took ex parte to mean discussions between one lawyer and the judge without the other lawyer present about the pending case.
