In my experience, social bookmarking can be very helpful in reaching out to people who'd be interested in your content, and I think that's more important than getting credit for a backlink.

Personally, I'm loving all these social sites and the spin-offs/improvements that come with them. I even found a tool that searches different tagging sites www.keotag.com, pretty slick. There is also the socializer tool by ekstreme that let's you tag several bookmarking services with one link from your website. Great stuff!

But as for myspace...urghhhhhhh it reminds me of the sites I used to build 18 years ago..

Here is something you might try to help with your SEO using any bookmarking sites that don't use "rel=nofollow" links...
Get a group of friends who have web sites, and have each one of them add each others' sites to their bookmark list. This would create one-way links from the many bookmarking lists to each site.
This is something a group of friends and I are testing right now, and so far it seems to have positive results.
Hope this helps!

I've also noticed that advertisers are spending more and more as they see the popularity with MySpace grow. Would be interesting to see if we see new job titles with something along the lines of "Social Networking Director" I would love to have that title.

That said, even when that does happen, its still worth having your site in those bookmarking sites. They all offer an internal search through user's bookmarks, so take advantage of that. Consider it another search engine to get yourself listed in.

What these are good for is promotion of your blog, or your website. It does help drive traffic there. Since using these networks, I've seen a definite increase in traffic and subscribers.
That said, the traffic could lead to legitimate links into your website/blog, by people reading the bookmarks. That's actually where I can see the SEO value, because actual bloggers or other websites linking in, definitely will way more (if they don't already) than the social tagging/networking/bookmarking sites.

In fact, I was kind of shocked and pleasantly surprised that it wasn't a session providing tips on how to do just that. Of course, I think these guys on the panel (yep all guys no gals) may not want it to get ruined by spammers, which is why they are adament about spamming.
However, I am still pretty sure the spammers will win out in the end and people will be sick of those sites within the next few years. Who knows though?
