I've created a new topic, so we can clarify this matter pronto.

Is this about the association of social networking profile pages (e.g., 
LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, G+ etc..) with the entities (people and 
organizations) they describe?

For example:

Is this about how you or I (people) are associated with (or related to) 
the profile pages (documents) provided by social network service 
providers? If so, then owl:sameAs, 'same as', :sameAs etc., do not 
denote the relation (relationship or association type) that coherently 
expresses the aforementioned relationship/association.
