With all the news Facebook as made in recent months, you may have wondered what the social giant thinks (and is sharing) about you.

Follow the steps recommended in the image (sic), and you’ll not only find out the political affiliation Facebook has assigned to you, but you’ll also learn what some of the other fascinating, eery and perhaps even incorrect things it believes are true about you.
