In the newest Steam Beta, you can already automatically post wallspam when you upload a screenshot.

It will tell all your prospective employers that you just played TF2 for 15 consecutive hours.

Without toilet breaks.

Use your Steam/gaming information to make a profit by selling that information to third parties for targeted advertising, is what I assume is the main thing they'll do.

Using Facebook integration with Steam as an incentive to perks on Steam is a bull move on Valves part. My respect for Valve (and with it the Steam platform) has just drastically gone down hill.

Giving users that choose to link their accounts to FB a higher friend count is a perk.

Where as those of us that choose not to use a shady companies services, yet have been long time loyal customers and supporters get nothing.
