"Taurus Legend invited you to like their Page."
"Invited me to like this page. Before I decide to like this page, what made you think I was a Taurus?"
"...FB choose your id random"
So, I wonder.. What information is being shared from our profile IDs?
Who is it being shared with?

Just unlike everything (movies, books, music, ect). Then, you can dig real deep into the settings and find what marketing "tags" facebook is using to show you advertisements. You can delete them. There you go, clean feed showing you only what your friends are posting/sharing.
It'll keep adding them though...anything you click on inside facebook can be turned into a potential marketing "interest". It is what it is, and facebook is free so...?
It's easy to demonize facebook -- but it's a voluntary thing, and it only abuses the information you allow it to have.

I have an old employer pop up under the people I may know section all the time. I used a different email in communication with him than I use for facebook, have never searched for him, never logged into facebook while in the same vicinity as him, never listed him as an employer. As far as I know, facebook should have zero way of connecting me to this person at all yet it does.
The only thing I can think of is that he must have searched for me at some point.
I do know it will automatically suggest people to you with if you've logged in using the same network or computer as them, if you've logged in within a certain distance of them, if you live nearby them, if you've ever attended any of the same schools.
The thing is, some of this info you can just not add. But a lot of it is collected and used automatically without any choice by you.
Personally I only put things on facebook I wouldn't mind a stranger finding out (which isn't much, I use facebook as an address book for people I don't have another way to contact ) because there's a good chance no matter how private everything is, people will still be able to see things on you post there.
