Excerpting from https://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/SocialAccountProperty

"Add a new property, 'socialAccount':

Comment: "Indicates a corresponding profile page for an account on a
socially-oriented Web site."
Used on types: ContactPoint, Person, MusicGroup, Organization, ServiceChannel
Expected types: URL, WebPage (i.e. a plain link or an inline
description are both OK)"

Example:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
<span itemprop="name">Stephen Fry</span>
     (<a itemprop="url" href="http://www.stephenfry.com/">stephenfry.com</a>,
      <a itemprop="socialAccount"
href="http://twitter.com/stephenfry">twitter</a>,
<a itemprop="sameAs"
href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry">wikipedia</a>)
</div>

This is roughly the same as one way of using foaf:account
(http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/#term_account).

We don't try to define exactly which kinds of sites it's used for as
'social network' etc are family resemblance concepts, but a common
anticipated use is sketched in this example.
