I'm more curious as to how they get the address of the other person.

Its not hard to get someone's address if they've been careless. If their gamertag is the same as their Facebook, and they took pictures at home, you can sometimes pull EXIF data to know where that photo was taken.

ya i definately wouldnt link my gamertag or any kind of account to be viewed by the general public. not very smart.

though i dont share my uploaded media.

some people do, especially with youtube videos and they use the same account name as their gamertags. a quick search of the gamertag will often yield surprising results if you dont enforce privacy settings

try it and see what you can come up with anything.

Looks like Facebook scrubs EXIF data, now that I just tested it.
