    Really? The social links that 99.99% of all websites have on their site? Why in the world would you think it would be bad?

    It's not like you're doing a two-way link trade with another website for the purpose of manipulating rankings. Linking to your social profiles lets your visitors know where else they can find you online and how they can take part in the community. It's a benefit, not a burden.

    It's not against Google's webmaster guidelines to link to your social profiles. What Google takes action against is linking two-way links whose purpose is to manipulate the rankings.

    I don't think it's a bad idea. I have found that a lot of sites doing same thing. I am talking about Facebook.
    In my personal opinion it would be better to link your site related group or page rather then your profile.

    It is not a bad thing. By social media, you can cover and attracts many niche users.

    These types of links are not harmful, and no-f links simply keep your sites link juice from bleeding off. Personally, I no-follow most outbound links, unless they are to an authority site in my niche. I want those associations.
