 > Is there an action which fires on first login only?

 Yes! http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/1.8.1/bp-core/bp-

 > In other words, a 3 step process where on one page they are ASKED TO
 upload photo, on next they are asked to enter all their details into
 open/visible fields, and maybe a 3rd page where they are asked to join
 groups is better than a single page where they CAN click links to change
 their details.

 I think this is probably true with respect to many individual community
 sites. The tricky part is that what exactly these three (or however many)
 steps will be will vary from site to site. A site that does not have
 groups enabled will not need a Groups step. A site that has disabled
 avatar uploads does not need an avatar upload step. And so on. Perhaps
 more importantly (because, of course, we can easily detect when components
 are switched off), sometimes communities may not *want* to emphasize, say,
 the joining of groups. (For example, a school site that uses groups to
 represent classes doesn't need to encourage new members to join groups.)
 So we need to come up with a workflow that: (a) will be good for maybe
 70-80% of BP installs out of the box; (b) is flexible enough to be
 modified by devs/plugins/themes; (c) is intelligent enough to
 automatically work differently when different components are
 enabled/disabled. Ideally, we would be able to build this into BuddyPress
 without the construction of massive administration panels, without some
 sort of drag-and-drop interface that lets admins build their own NUX
 workflow. (Not that there's anything wrong with these sorts of tools - it
 would make a great plugin - I just think we should strive to come up with
 something that's general enough to suit most users without large amounts
 of config.)
