You should go for light colors.It makes your websites more readable and gives less strain to your eyes.Go For light and warm colors If you want your visitors to spend more time on your sites.
Check out facebook,Google Plus.. They all have light colors .
The theme of your social networking sites depends upon what type of social networking you offers.If its music, video or Image oriented like myspace I guess a dark theme would be better to make your art stand out.
