short URL

XFN 1.1 introduced the "me" rel value which is used to indicate profile equivalence and for identity-consolidation.

rel="me" is used on hyperlinks from one page about a person to other pages about that same person.

For example, Tantek's home page has (markup simplified)

<a href="" rel="me">@t</a>

And his Twitter profile itself has (markup simplified)

<a href="" rel="me"></a>

Thus establishing a bi-directional rel-me link and confirming that the two URLs represent the same person.

Publishers can use the XFN creator form to create rel-me hyperlinks.
