How do I get all fields from user profiles including quote and tags? I'm using C#.
User Profile data is pretty easy to work with.
You can access it through the API by using the UserProfileManager and the GetUserProfile method - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.office.server.userprofiles.userprofilemanager.aspx
You can also access it through the web services which opens it up to non-SharePoint Apps, InfoPath forms, etc. UserProfileService.asmx - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms550407.aspx
Here is a link for the SocialData namespace with info on how to work with tags and notes. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff426882.aspx
