Unless you absolutely need to send one, you shouldn’t (if the need is real, consider a phone call or in-person conversation).

On it, I found a sometimes inaccurate but eerie amount of personal information about, well, my life: my birthday and home city; my previous job title (though curiously not my current one); a list of people "Seth maintains relationships with," including the names of both my parents, each linked to their own profile pages with still more data.
