OSX Mavericks 10.9.4 on an MBP

I cannot authenticate to any social network from the "Internet Accounts" in System Preferences, usually the response is: "Unable to verify account name or password" (I have checked these credentials at the websites for the appropriate networks)

Here is an example result from the system.log:

Jul 17 14:48:15 apa com.apple.preferences.internetaccounts.remoteservice[3953]: *** accountTypeWithAccountTypeIdentifier:com.apple.facebook returned nil
Jul 17 14:48:15 --- last message repeated 1 time ---
Jul 17 14:48:15 apa com.apple.preferences.internetaccounts.remoteservice[3953]: -[IAAccount initWithProviderType:loginName:] [358] -- *** Missing parameter. provider = com.apple.account.facebook; loginName = (null)
Jul 17 14:48:15 apa com.apple.preferences.internetaccounts.remoteservice[3953]: *** accountTypeWithAccountTypeIdentifier:com.apple.facebook returned nil

I have verified and tried facebook, twitter, linkedin, and flickr. I mostly just want to integrate these services into the notification center.

Has anyone seen this behavior (failure for all social networks)? Any fixes? Thanks for looking...

I looked in my logs and I get a different reply... seems that the linkedin processes/api have changed
