Are you working for Facebook now Melvin? Just asking so I can understand if those answers are your guesses, or feedback from Facebook. 

My guesses would be similar to yours mostly because they already do provide machine readable info about users, and because it is so easy to do this.  

But I still don't think it's helpful to spend too much time on this list on guessing games.
