Yikes !

"Leila is a sex worker. She goes to great lengths to keep separate identities for ordinary life and for sex work, to avoid stigma, arrest, professional blowback, or clients who might be stalkers (or worse).

Her “real identity”—the public one, who lives in California, uses an academic email address, and posts about politics—joined Facebook in 2011. Her sex-work identity is not on the social network at all; for it, she uses a different email address, a different phone number, and a different name. Yet earlier this year, looking at Facebook’s “People You May Know” recommendations, Leila (a name I’m using using in place of either of the names she uses) was shocked to see some of her regular sex-work clients."

in this day and age of biometric recognition and all manner of tags and data points, you'd have to go to much greater lengths to have a dual identity.

Same IP. Facebook knows all, sees all, is all.

That is a possibility, but given the deep matching of information the match was probably based on IP and other sites visited. For example, I look at a piece of AV related material on B&H Photo in connection to ordering supplies at work. Next thing I see is that specific item being advertised to me on Facebook at home.

If it's the people you may know, that's an invitation to sue Facebook for invitation of privacy--favorable facts, unfavorable defendant, click-license waiver will be swept aside.
