Facebook’s Trolling for Keywords

I posted a status to Facebook that included the words “Sea World” and all of a sudden I received a recommended page for Sea World and other Orlando theme parks in their advertisement section.  Does anyone really think that Facebook isn’t parsing every post for nuggets they can glean and use for advertising purposes?

From a technical perspective, it is pretty impressive.  From a privacy perspective, it is very very scary.
