In the vein of "Tivo thinks I'm gay"...

... Facebook thinks I'm Canadian.

It started when I got dating-service ads in French on my sidebar page. Now I'm getting ads for other Canadian services: a resort in Cancun that needs Canadian residents; a no-cost evaluation for pardons (doesn't have the word "Canada" or any derivative, but the logo involves a maple leaf); and a link to a site where I can find out about tax credits the government of Canada is offering.

Is somebody trying to tell me something?
