Tell me, as an Artist and in no way an SEO expert, what have I got to lose.
- time, you're working on someone elses site/content instead of your own
- traffic, occasionally social sites will outrank you with your own content
- respect, occasionally a visitor will be part of a different social site and feel left out... and leave.
Make it easy to connect your site with social sites FOR USERS and their own profiles, of course, but temper the need to create your own web profile(for every site you own) if they don't bring you dividends on your time/traffic/respect. Having a facebook like button is very different than having a facebook profile to maintain.
