    Social media links from sites like FB and Twitter are nofollowed, and that's typically always the case when getting links on social media, but that doesn't mean social signals are not important for your SEO efforts.

    Even though social links have nofollow tags, they still send traffic to your site. In addition to this, it gives you more credibility in Google's eyes because they can see people are talking about your website/brand.

    Additionally, even though social media links tend to be nofollowed, that doesn't mean other websites/blogs won't share your content and offer a do follow link.

    Social media links will get you tons of traffic regardless if they are do follow or no follow because most of these sites have a domain authority of between domain authority of 99 to 100. It is not just the SEO benefit you focus on getting from social media links but also quality referral traffic from the social media sites.

    Social media links might be poor or complete no link juice you can expect from them but yes they will be count in matter of backlinks. Even though you have less chances to get real good backlinks from them but yes they are good source of traffic for you that you needed most for each of your websites.

    Social media links basically not provide better results. But it is the best platform for promoting our websites and products. If we maintain very effective and valuable social media page then it may be very popular in some time and it drive more traffic to our website.

    I don't know much about the Seo for Social media, but they are giving some value to show how many people are interested in that topic. Traffic sometimes may arrive and some times can't I seen Stumbleupon and Reddit has bot traffic, but Twitter sends real people to reach audience.
    Some has said in the past the most Social shares will give more weight in Google, so it would rank in top place.

    I don't think standing in 2016 and we need to know when the Social links will give us do follow links. Even the do follow links will result into the traffic, so, not a bad idea to get the direct traffic from social media instead of do follow backlinks.

    Every products need customers and social media may give you the relevant audience you can convert into your customers. The Social presence is everything Google already has accepted it with open heart.

    Social media links used regardless of the thing that they will not provide the quality results but in the case of the requirement of the large traffic they are being used and still we need to add an effective looking media links to attract traffic through them.
