Was think, with Facebooks big brother skills, why have they not released a xmas shopping guide.

An app were you enter someones name and Facebook scrapes through their data and comes up with a top ten list of things they may want for xmas.

Would make finding the perfect gift so much easier and it would break the users privacy setting any more than normal for Facebook.

It does break the privacy settings, an app can access all your information but can't access any of your friends info.

It would only work if everybody allowed the app. 

I have thought of the idea before though, mainly for birthdays for people you don't know so well more than xmas.
