  Dash - Photo and Gwibber Lenses which don't provide any content before
  the user searches

Bug description:
  There are lenses (e.g.: Social Lens and Photo Lens) that on a first
  install don't provide any content, even after a search is performed.
  The user should be aware that performing a search is vain so that no
  effort is wasted. The user should also be educated on how to add
  content to the lens, especially if depends on something which requires
  manual actions. In the case of the Social Lens, for instance, the user
  should be informed that to populate the lens it is necessary to have
  at least a compatible Online Account enabled.

  Desired solution:

  - Both the Photo and Gwibber Lens should not appear in the Dash bottom
  nav bar unless they have content to display.

  - Note in this case discovery of the Gwibber Lens will be handled by
  'Ubuntu Online Accounts'.  After a user has enabled their first social
  network using Online Accounts the Gwibber Lens should appear.

  - Note in the case of the Photo Lens, this Lens should only appear
  when there are either local images stored on the computer that are
  accessible by this lens, or when the user has enabled their first
  online photo service using the 'Ubuntu Online Accounts' service.
