    I want to connect with people who have/share the same interests and ideas as I do.

    1- You need "us" after "assisted".
    2- Say "who have the same interests and ideas as we do" or "who share the same interests and ideas with us."

    I got it. We can only use 'the same" with "as" .
    Thank you.

    The Internet has greatly assisted us to connect with people across the world
    who have similar interests and ideas.

    No. Take another look at what I wrote in post #2.

    "who have the same interests and ideas as we do" or "who share the same interests and ideas with us."

    I find "share the same x with" unnatural.

    A and B have the same x as C.
    A, B and C share x.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
