Just a quick question,

 

My one of my client wants to add their blogs from other sites on their main business site. 

 

Is there any harm in doing this? What about duplicate content? Will the site be penalized in any way shape or form? 

 

Also, they wants to add social media to it as well.

Can you clarify? By "blogs" do you mean blog posts or whole blog sites? And if it's blog posts, do you mean posts they've written for other blogs, or just posts they think will be of interest to people reading on their site?

 

And what do you mean by "add social media"? Are you talking about adding social sharing buttons to those posts? Adding social media profiles and creating content to publish there? A broad definition of "social media" would actually include blogs themselves, since they usually allow comments from readers.

Ok, 

first they want to put blogs on their site that have been posted else wheres.

secondly, I think they just want social media like buttons.

 

I just don't want to impact the sites listings on goggle. No matter what, this cannot happen.

 

If there is a change that google could do something funny, I will tell them no.

Is there a change the site could get bungled?

If they're just putting blog posts that have been written by others on their site, then yes, it can be a problem with Google as that's obviously duplicate content.
