user.pic not working for every facebook profile

I'm trying to get the url of the profile pictures of my friends using user.pic. However, it seems like 10% of my friends have an empty value for pic. Anyone know why this is?

Off the top of my head, I'm guessing that those users have set their privacy settings such that applications can't get their picture without their permission. I can't remember if there's a privacy setting quite like that or not, but that's the most likely answer.
