Is NetworkedBlogs App on Facebook Bad For SEO?

NetworkedBlogs seems good for content syndication, but is it bad for SEO?

I'm trying to evaluate whether a client should be using the Networked Blogs app on Facebook to syndicate their content. The app has a lot of plusses, most dealing with the fact that it's really easy for them to publish a blog post to Facebook, Twitter, etc.

But I'm concerned about one thing: if anyone "shares" a link to a post that was posted to Facebook via NetworkedBlogs, the link inside the share is to a NetworkedBlogs.com URL. They have a frame-based system that adds their own stuff at the top of the page and then has your linked page behind.

I realize that links on walls have JavaScript and all sorts of madness, but from what I understand they still are relevant for SEO. So will using NetworkedBlogs to syndicate your posts negatively affect your SEO and backlinks? Has anyone used NetworkedBlogs and/or evaluated its impact on their backlinks from Facebook?
