Smith, Ms. Augmented Reality Research: 'Offline to Online Recognition' from source: "At the Black Hat security conference, Carnegie Mellon University researchers Alessandro Acquisti, Ralph Gross and Fred Stutzman presented "Faces of Facebook: Privacy in the Age of Augmented Reality" [PDF].

After more online data mining that they called "augmented reality," like on creepy site Spokeo once they had a person's name, they were able find out addresses and phone numbers, interests, sexual orientation, credit scores, and in some cases social security numbers. This "offline to online recognition" all started by them having a single photo of a person.
