Happens to me too.
I had accounts (most deleted) for the following subjects:
•Sports trading cards
•Sports team fan account
All of them suggested my friends to me as people to follow. Would have to spend 15 minutes or so blocking them so they'd never see the account.
marcom4853yJust a guess but did you used these accounts with your normal ones from same IP address?
@marcom i've seen a security-se post stating that facebook-apps overstep their boundaries (the facebook-app reads your phone contacts and might read your clipboard). They collect data from all possible sources (best example: their new vpn-app), and they surely can connect the different profiles with the data.
Anonymity won't be possible with facebook-services, unless you use different devices, browsers, bowsing habits and ip-addresses (virtually different devices might be enough, but if you want to be 100% sure use physical devices).
Oh, and facebook will surely get your location on the smartphone thanks to the unique wifi-hotspots in your area
marcom4853yUsing VPN and a wrapper on mobile phone instead of native FB app maybe the first step if you can not resist FB at all
All this advice about staying anon on fb services sounds like telling someone to put on moderate amount of protection, and go headbutting hornets nest.
Just delete the damn account, block all their 3rd party tracking (there's some good extension and addons out there that do most of the blocking), and support social networks other social networks that don't pull this type of shit.
cyanly6413yNever had Facebook account, never will. Not everyone on insta fb, and SMS still works in 2018
