Haha, had nothing to do with your phone

No one went on your FB and made those suggestions (except perhaps friends). FB automatically makes friend suggestions based on your friends' friends. Think of it like a depiction of a web of friends and there's strings attaching various friends to others. Depending on how many friends know a certain person you don't have added, someone will be added to your suggestion list. And it's not coincidence it happened that day. It's very likely people were being tagged in pictures and posts which is the explanation for the new suggestions so suddenly.

Scary? Possibly, but I can assure you, no one handpicked that list for you, it's pure programming.
