Its insiduously straightforward.
Code in the programs on your phone activate your phone microphone. Normally, you do this by executing a program like the phone or a voice recorder. From your experience, it sounds as though Facebook has code that will serrupticiously turn your microphone on.
I'd advise reading an apps access rights when you install it and know what it will and will not do on your phone.

I was just thinking about a drill/driver set I got for Christmas from my dad who in his old age forgot he had bought me an awesome drill three years ago.
My gf just returned it to Home Depot for store credit last weekend. I never mentioned the brand name in any text or anywhere online.
I get on ATS seconds after thinking about it and the banner ad is the brand of the drill/driver set.
This has been happening more frequently.
Maybe we're already in the Matrix O_o
