Questioning Facebook’s suggestion technology

Recently, I had an interesting experience with Facebook’s suggestion technology. You know, the box that says “You like x, so you’ll probably like y.” The other day, the suggestion technology got stuck on Work, trying to tell me that people who had “liked” Work also liked other activities that I might like. As I cycled through them, I grabbed screen captures of what it recommended. The commentary was added later :)

Is Facebook very good at giving suggestions?
