I don’t believe Google will penalize a site for being popular on social media sites.  Google currently gives heavy weight to social networking sites, and in result you get organic traffic.  I know Alexa has began excluding social media sites in their measurements.  We’ll see what 2009 brings, but social media is mainstream so I think Google would be stupid to exclude sites for their social media involvement.

I think social media can be manipulated, and it would be fine if Google just ignore those links. Anyway, the important links that you obtain via social media marketing, the links from its users blogs, will still be there to boost your rankings.

What about social media sites that you host your content on. There is a decent amount that is great and unique, so should they lose out on a little juice too?

@facundocorradini"the important links that you obtain via social media marketing, the links from its users blogs, will still be there to boost your rankings."I believe his point is the most important thing in social media marketing.  You have more visitors form social media and that results in more links and more publicity.

maybe some of them will be under "noindex". but if some bookmarks are popular and unique - why they should be ignored? how google will find that (where’s spam and where’s not)?

Social Media is a part of Blogs & Social Bookmarking. This is crazy to think that Google will penalize for Social Media Spam thats like saying Google will penalize for Blog Comments or better yet for having forum signatures. Social Bookmarking is a huge part of Social Media but keep in mind Blogs and Social Media Forums are even bigger my friend.

Where did anyone say that Google would penalize social media links? Why are so many critical of that prospect when no one has suggested it. All that has been suggested is that maybe Google might "kill" or just ignore those links due to the ability to manipulate and self promote them. That a big difference to penalize a site for doing it.

When maintained by individuals, I think social media links are still considered "vital".  It’s when items are artificially boosted by bogus users for example that problems can arise.

extremely interesting, and no I don’t think it would be surprising if google would kill these links; social media is supposedly the new craze for SEO, but maybe that’s only because making purchases for link building on totally random sites for organic leads became out of the question... os my question is what’s next!?
