    This visionary paper presents the Internet of Things paradigm in terms of interdependent dynamic dimensions of objects and their properties. Given that in its current state Internet of Things (IoT) has been viewed as a paradigm based on hierarchical distribution of objects, evaluation of the dynamic nature of the hierarchical structures faces challenges in its evaluation and analysis. Within this in mind, our focus is on the area of complex social networks and the dynamic social network construction within the context of IoT. This is by highlighting and addressing the tagging issues of the objects to the real-world domain such as in disaster management, these are in relation to their hierarchies and interrelation within the context of social network analysis. Specifically, we suggest to investigate and deepen the understanding of the IoT paradigm through the application of social network analysis as a method for interlinking objects -- and thus, propose ways in which IoT could be subsequently interlinked and analyzed through social network analysis approach - which provides possibilities for linking of the objects, while extends it into real-world domain. With this in mind, we present few applications and key characteristics of disaster management and the social networking analysis approach, as well as, foreseen benefits of its application in the IoT domain.
