Found the spiffy Origami book as well. Am probably ordering it.

Facebook information could be sniffable: http://www.theregister.com/2007/06/26/sniffing_private_facebook_info/

It only implies that someone could guess and check to see if you have some specific words on your profile. So they would have to know you, and then maybe have something specific they're looking for. Which could or could not be a problem. It's a bit like bruteforcing a password: trying different combinations over and over, but unless bruteforcing the password, a correct guess only tells you that it's correct, and does not grant you access to the account.
