    Not a joke, Facebook actually sees and hears everything you do. I was talking to a friend recently about how I needed triple a batteries for a remote and within minutes Facebook showed me an advertisement for them. It also know who you talk to at work or school and puts them in your people you may know. As far as I know there’s no way to stop this from happening.
