    Google+ sharing play an important role to get good ranking.
    As Google mention that Facebook, twitter and other such big social sites didn't help to get ranking, but they never say that Google+ sharing never helps to get ranked.

    So, focus on Google+ sharing

    Social Media links don't deliver link juice, and have the nofollow tag applied to them so you're not going to improve your position on the SERP, but there is an indirect impact of social media is its ability to generate new inbound links by improving brand awareness and overall online visibility.

      agreed. no matter if they are no-follow, but if you are getting the good amount of traffic from social media it will indirectly improve your SEO.

    Personally I have never seen any evidence that social signals help with your SERP possitions and I would love to see any analytics or rank tracker data from the people above who said it does.

    To my knowledge, most of the links on Social Media are no follow anyway so offer little to no benefit to SERP movement anyway.

    Social media provides opportunity to expand your connections. The number of your organic social media followers and connections has a rich influence on your search engine rankings.
    For example, a website design company with a million Twitter followers will receive substantially more rankings than a website design company with a hundred Twitter followers.

    Formally, Google says social media does not count. However, in practice social postings can be seen in Google Analytics traffic. And in terms of SEO, social posts with proper use of keywords can help search rankings and thus your web presence. When you post content, in particular articles, blogs, videos, ensure you use solid keywords (determined by keyword research) in your title, meta description and content. As part of this remember that Google likes video and image content - they need keywords, too.

    The main signals/metrics that appear to affect rankings include Facebook likes and shares, LinkedIn shares, and Google+ shares. In a study by Cognitive SEO, an almost linear relationship was found between strong social presence (as measured via the above metrics) and better search engine rankings.

    So use social media to your advantage to expand your customer base and strengthen your brand name and reputation. Sites like the Sales and Marketing Stack can help with ideas and tools to keep your marketing effective.

    Consider these three ways social media impacts SEO:

    1. Social sharing drives traffic to websites

    Posting links to quality content can garner shares, likes and comments. It also encourages social media users to migrate to official business websites.

    TIP: Regularly share links to website content on appropriate social media sites. Some platforms, such as LinkedIn, lend themselves to posting long-form content directly.

    2. Social media profiles rank in search engines

    If you type the name of a business in a search engine, its social media profiles will likely pop up along with its official website.

    TIP: Make sure all pertinent social profiles are active and consistently engaging with audiences. What's most important is targeting the platforms that resonate most with your prospective customers.

    3. Social media boosts brand awareness

    Facebook had 1.71 billion monthly active users during the second quarter of 2016, and there were 317 million monthly active users on Twitter as of the third quarter. Both these figures, supplied by Statista, illustrate just how important social media has become for generating brand awareness.

    TIP: Consistently engage with social audiences by asking questions, starting discussions and commenting on news and trends.

    Yes there is such a thing called "social signals" which Google does take into account, but some will argue it's only a small fraction of a larger pie when it comes to ranking.

    Social media does not help directly to SEO rankings. Here are three ways social media actually does help your SEO efforts.

    1. Potential for Links
    2. Build an Audience
    3. Branded Searches
