Actually I was thinking of how many people don't have smartphones and big societies still know something about them.
For exemple... A, B, C and D have an android smartphone, Z has an old nokia 6120.
A, B, C and D know Z and they have him in their phone contacts, along with his name, surname, email, mobile phone number, home telephone number, address, birthday, organization, nickname, website, events, aim, skype, yahoo etc.
A B C and D sync their contact list with google.
Google (that already knows who A,B and C are) sees that a,b,c and d's contact info are quite similiar. D never bought an android phone and never used google mail, but google still has their information.
All this is done automatically, and the result is a huge archive with millions of people's info.
