As I said it is probably a cultural question. I won't name the 
information on my national ID card 'content' (rather property or 
attribute), but I would name the frontpage of the local news paper 
'content'. But I am foreign to English. Just note that others might have 
similar perceptions about the word 'content'. I am not against using 
this word, nor do I have something better to suggest, so I am not really 
bringing the discussion further myself... I just would not call the 
group of properties in my user profile 'content'...
