I have no idea what the preposition is?

Today I saw one sentence
"The same for your parents' group of friends. "
I have no idea why the preposition is "for" instead of "as" or "to"??

Additional Details:

they simply don't know "of" any internships in agriculture.
can I just say
they simply don't know any internships in agriculture.

    The sentence is understood to mean:
    The same quality (or situation) is true for your parents' group of friends.

    If you were talking about some possession or noun, you would say it like this.
    His house is the same type as your parents' group of friends'. (note the apostrophe at the end.
    However, the sentence would be clearer as:
    His house is the same type as those of your parents' group of friends. (no apostrophe)

    Hello Sonia, I'm still beginner like you. I think prepositions are very difficult to us. We must practice to use them.. ^-^ practice practice practice... :)
