click the ad and see what website the ad leads you to, if it is Microsoft then you might have been targeted by their re-targeting pixel on FB.

Re-targeting pixel works like this... if you came across a website selling a particular Nike shoe (whether you buy or not), they will fire a re-targeting pixel into your browser such that when you next visit Google search or Facebook, their Nike ad will "follow" and be displayed to you in order to convert you into higher chance of buying their Nike shoe.

Back to your Microsoft case, chances are you have re-targeting pixel fired into your browser when you visit Microsoft website so that Microsoft can show their ad to you on Facebook or Google in order to convert you into buying their other products.
