Thanks, E. I’ve decided to look at it from a different perspective, and found the problem was actually with the “Facebook all” plugin. It appears that they weren’t necessarily creating all meta info when creating the member. So, all it took was a few lines in the plugin to update_field all of those fields with default values. All is good.
