Will social networking links become next for spam team?

Social penalty for leaving you links too much? Codename magpie?

When I add a page to my main site I update all social platforms with a snippet and a link so my readers can read more, but could this be a problem down the road once the spam team start looking at social spamming? Thoughts on the future for social?

I can't ever seeing publishing your own content on your own social media accounts ever being a problem.

It's the purchase / trade of retweets / likes / shares etc that would need cracking down on if "social signals" are ever a top ranking factor.

EDIT: After giving it a little more thought it's the networks of those who own thousands of fake profiles and accounts too.

I think as long as you have a legitimate social media account that links to original content you will be okay. I completely see what you're saying but I think Google will (hopefully)see that and make the connection of you being a reliable source.

FWIW I don't give a damn what Google thinks or does, I do everything for my users, not their whims, fantasies and algorithms.
