#4278: Alter approach to social profile retrieval on profile templates

 The sidebar on profile templates contains a 'Find me on' section, which
 includes social profile links sourced from the users' Gravatar profile.
 These icons are fetched and output via a JavaScript function / ajax

 Other (pending) enhancements require that we have access to this data
 earlier in the page, and, server-side. This necessitates a shift to a
 server-side process for fetching these icons.

 - The JavaScript function(s) used to retrieve the Gravatar social profiles
 should be removed.
 - A new server-side process should be introduced, using either
 https://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/profiles/php/ or
 - Values should be cached for an appropriate period of time, and ideally,
 flushed on profile update.
