Will Google "Penguin" ruin my Instructables' ranking? Answered

I recently came across an article about Google Penguin.

I also recently started sharing my Instructables' posts on Pinterest, Twitter, and Google+, and am confused.

There are many spammy websites that take the info form my I'bles, repost it, and also leave a link to the I'ble (most of them). Example: https://www.google.com/search?q=Finger+Mallet+from+a+Tree+Branch&oq=Finger+Mallet+from+a+Tree+Branch&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i59&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
I really like Pinterest, and am okay with G+ and Twitter.

I think most of my Instructables show as the first clickable option (rank), since most of my Instructables are ORIGINAL (until the Youtube plagiarizers find about them) things that haven't been posted before online...
Will sharing on social media affect this?

I try to share my Instructables in a non-spammy way on social media. Will it still lower the ranking?

If it lowers the ranking only a little bit, they might still show up as first, and also attract more views.

I'm confused...

If I read that right, it's talking about links from websites that are just lists of links.

I also think it's not being updated any more anyway, so you're fine.

I think.
