    perhaps, instagram are owned by facebook... which they are and they integrate with each other to pass data.

    It can suggest users that your friends have interacted with, even if they're not friends with each other.  I have a second fb account and one of the "people you may know" is someone I messaged once on my main account and was never friended to.

    The people you may know is not only Based on Mutual Friends there could be other things that may Match a Suggestion 

    If they go to the Same School as you 

    If they live in the same area as you 

    If they work at the same Place as you 

    There are Lots of things that the People you may know Section is Generated Off Of
