I found this here (http://www.macnn.com/articles/12/05/16/mid.2007.mbps.temporarily.excluded/):

One of the new features in Mountain Lion, an adaptation of iOS's Notification Center, now has an additional option for controlling notifications from a "SocialPushAgent," though it doesn't define which social service that might cover (Twitter has its own separate Notification Center category already). Users can choose from either self-removing banners that appear temporarily (as seen in iOS 5), or "alerts" that stay on-screen until dismissed. Other refinements or additions may appear later as more testers dig into the new build, which is labelled 12A206J.

It's not running on mine. Are you or have you been a developer before?

It may also be related to Facebook Notification Center integration according to this thread on MacRumors:

That I am not sure of. Is it causing problems with your OS or other apps? If not, it appears to be a harmless process from Apple.

For anyone wondering where this is go to settings, notifications, and you would see SocialPushAgent in the left hand column

No not causing any problems I just got concerned because it doesn't have an image of anything so I wasn't sure of what it was.

Do you have Facebook integration setup? I do not because I do not have a Facebook. With that said, I do not have the SocialPushAgent in my Settings --> Notifications area.

Yes I have both twitter and facebook setup. Interesting thing now though, I turned off the SocialPushAgent and now I can click to send tweet or click to post to facebook from the notification center

That's odd. I only have Twitter integrated and don't have that process.

Turned it back on and restarted the computer and the 2 boxes are still there but when I click them nothing happens.
