http://graph.facebook.com/kidehen#this  in my data space means that you 
can SPARQL, build exploit and FYN using that name or my local name. It 
also resolves to FB's specific Object Representation with any Name vs 
Address ambiguity. That's a win right there.

What makes that a win? The fact that it less of a burden for them to see 
the prowess of turning the literals in their graph into HTTP URI Names. 
Even if they never did it, that pattern is great tutorial material for 
anyone seeking to understand what Linked Data is about, and why Name and 
Address disambiguation is vital. Just as vital as its always been 
elsewhere in computing where "data access by reference" has been put to 
good use etc..
