This one needs a "glossary" for me to understand what it's supposed to
mean. Without thinking too hard, or doing research into what Facebook
uses the term for, {DuQ} "stab" comes to mind immediately.

I'd need a "glossary" to be sure, but it might be asking for how much
schooling one has had. Perhaps {DuSaQ patlh} "school level" (though
that could be misunderstood as "class rank").

> 10. public search listing

This could mean too many things, all completely different. Is it
talking about a public "search listing" or a "public search" listing?
Is it a result of a question? Is it an action? Is it a yes/no option?
I don't want to spend time thinking about the right way to say the
wrong thing.
