    Today I was looking over my site and notice that I link out to linkedin and twitter from every exisitng page on my domain. It makes me wonder should I no follow it? Do I loose any link juice?

    Marcink99,

    Linking to another site is essentially a vote for that site (Google's words). So if you made your outbound links no-follow, it would be taking link juice away from LinkedIn and Twitter, not your site.

    Some interesting reading,

    Hope that answers your question,

    You should also keep in mind that Google wants to see your site linking to other authority sites. So this is something I would leave as is.
