I was listening to a podcast that tried to answer the question of Facebook listening on your conversations for ad placement:

Thats interesting in it's own right, but within the episode they mentioned that your profile as compiled from your activity is available for you to consult, and although I am not on Facebook except for a page I used for sketchwars, mine managed to describe certain events in my recent life, equally spooky and fascinating, here's the instructions:

Go to settings, then ads on the left column, click on the your information tab, and finally on the your categories, that's how Facebook sees you, here's mine:

I deleted one while testing it, but it said something like: Likes medium-high end priced electronics...which I do.
