How to force Social & Local detection/connection of Social media websites on your blog/website using schema.org meta data or script

On this article l wants to show you how you can force Social & Local detection of Social websites Using schema.org meta data or script which will make it easier to associate and connect all your online profiles both Local and Social in just a few lines using the code am going to expose to you down 👇 the writeup example

You can add other Social profiles but this are the once included in google search result for now. 

So whats the work of Schema.org in this concept. 

Schema.org is an  organization item sameAs allows “a school, Club corporation, NGO etc.” to “reference a Web page that unequivocally  indicate the items identity.

E.g. the URL of the item's  Freebase page, Wikipedia page or official website." Also specifying an address will help in finding you in online local directories. 
But if you're not running an organization it don't affect you either, because schema.org also covers websites that are represents you as brand,

which still makes it valid for you to use it to indicate that your website, local profiles and social go hand in hand. ( that's making everyone know that you own and run this websites, local profiles and social and that they all belong to you).

So lets look at the code example from which you can form your own Social and local detection of your Social website below. 

Example:
<script type="application/ld+json">{  "@context" : "http://schema.org",  "@type" : "Organization",  "name" : "EmpireTechx blog ",  "url" : "https://www.empiretechx.com",  "sameAs" : [    "https://twitter.com/empiretechx",    "https://plus.google.com/112129723070074152828",    "https://www.facebook.com/empiretechx",    "https://foursquare.com/empiretechx",    "http://www.yelp.com/biz/your-business-url-from-yelp"   ],  "address": {    "@type": "PostalAddress",    "streetAddress": "24 Court Road ",    "addressRegion": "Onitsha",    "postalCode": "430001",    "addressCountry": "Nigeria"  }}</script>
