Is Facebook Secretly Listening To Your Conversations?

A couple claims that Facebook is secretly listening to our conversations.  

They talked incessantly about cat food for an entire day in July with their cellphones close by.  They don’t have a cat and never search for cat products on their phones.  

Two days later Facebook began showing them ads for cat food and similar products. They recorded the entire experiment and posted it online.  

But a product manager with Facebook claims the company does not and has “never” used a phone’s microphone for the purpose of collecting information to send to advertisers.
