OSM is no marketing support tool.
OSM is not and IMHO should not be responsible to tie different parts of
a bad marketing campaign together.
As you wrote yourself: "Usually the website would have a link to those
social networks, so tagging the website alone would be all that's needed."
For me that is: Use that central website as website, and nothing else.
If there isn't (e.g. because it's NOT a GOOD marketing campaign) use no
website at all or choose one you know.
If the most central website of the facility is the facebook website,
well... use that in osm, (probably add "if it's relevant for the POI
(and not for marketing only)", as you like personally).
