Sure this has been asked before but if a new work colleague appears first in your list of friend suggestions having just started work there, with no friends in common, they are looking at your page within the last 24 hrs ,right?

I'm not sure if it's linked at all.. I think Facebook just finds someone that works for the same company in your area and matches you up.

Not necessarily. Many smartphones will track your location, and make suggestions based on who you've been sitting next to.

I got a "person you may know" once for a parent I'd sat near at a class assembly at school.

No way they would have known my name- and that's being arrogant enough to assume they gave enough of a fuck to be looking me up anyway.

I don't work for a company in that respect and don't know this person. I think it must be in the algorithm somehow. I suppose it could be based on the town, because my location services thing is switched on now. Anyway I have deleted because he is a boss and better to keep it all separate.

Yes agree that's probably it thanks.
