I keep getting ads on the right side of my Facebook newsfeed inviting me to join various groups, the most recent one I saw today is called 'Kentucky Fried Calvinism', and in the past week I've seen invitations for groups with names like 'Reformed Theology and Apologetics' or 'Presuppositional Reformed Apologetics' or 'Reformed Epistemology'.

A couple years ago, I was being asked to join various Lutheran groups, now it's Reformed.

What does Facebook use to make these recommendations? They are way off in their assumptions about my interests.

I assume it's based on words and phrases you post.

You were predestined to be labelled Reformed, and you can't do anything to make the label go away.

Hmmm. Interesting that you would receive 'other'.

You must be posting too many 5000 word rebuttals to 14 year old Methodists

I concur with Fr. Obi because I keep getting ads for progressive liberal and atheist pages.
