Facebook Has Patented Friend Suggestions By Tracking People You Meet In Person

I kid you not, Facebook now has a patent to track you via the people you interact with in real life so the company can "suggest friends" to you. Seriously? How far is too far?

Facebook has been granted a patent that it could use to detect the people who you spend time with on a regular basis. The idea is that the person you sit next to on the bus and flirt with could be suggested as a Facebook friend by the social network.
