    You can see your backlinks in google webmaster, but how much of your 20 links will be displayed in webmaster depends on your social account activity.

    Yes, you will get backlinks, useless backlinks! No offence intended. Social backlinks won't rank your site so focus on better link sources if you want to get traffic from Google.

    Most social networking sites give you nofollow link (if they're giving) this is of no use in terms of SEO but build some reputation.

    No, most social media sites use rel="nofollow" for links.

    AKA no direct SEO value.

    I want to know about those social networks which can be beneficial for SEO. As most of social networks are providing nofollow backlinks. So is there any benefits from those links or there is any other social network providing dofollow backlinks.

      nofollow backlinks can improve your SEO in indirect way.

      because it can drive traffic to your website and if your website contain a high quality content, therefore, the visitors will stay there for long time, that will decrease your website bounce rate which have a positive effect in your ranking on google (improve your SEO)

    I am sure there are no social networking websites that will provide a dofollow link. And if someone provides a dofollow link to you in any case the value of the link juice passed to your website will be negligible or maybe sometimes negative since social media is open for everyone thus the number of links on a single page is going to be in hundreds if not in thousands.

    It depends on your audience and content. If the audience likes your content then obviously you get the backlinks from social media.

    Yes , social networking site give you backlinks but no follow links so no any profit from it. We get traffic from social networking only.

    What matters in Social networks is not the actual backlinks people use retweeting it or posting. Those, as everybody has told you, are no follow. The importance is that your content resonates to improve your brand and it gets known so somebody else uses it in their own websites as a reference.
