I have a friend who works for peanuts, and sets up social profile links for me. however, these social profiles are not just a link. personally I think if all you do is join these sites for a backlink , you are just contributing to the spam around the net.
if you are going to join social sites, then you need to join the community and engage people. stop spamming the net with crap just for backlinks. think about getting customers to your site instead of giving control of your business to google. Google rankings are nice, but if your entire strategy is to focus on them, you have wasted your time online. you are leaving most of the traffic that you could be getting, and sales that could be made while you were waiting on them to deem your site worthy of their rankings
