      As far as I know most of the social media websites offer No Follow backlinks.. Be it Quora, Facebook, twitter... Can you name which social media sites offer Do follow backlinks?

    Yup, but only on high-quality sites, should have a safe environment, means the site should not have links to adult sites, gambling sites and more.

    But according to me, you should focus on user engagement & experience, it will be good for you to rank on Google.

    If u r doing social bookmarks for your site from big bookmarking sites (stumbleupon, digg etc). then its good. But dont do bookmark for your main site from more than 5-6 bookmarking sites....
    There are hundreds of pligg boookmarking sites available on internet and u certainly need to avoid those.....
    Low quality bookmarking sites are useful for the purpose of indexing your links but dont send those directly on your website.

    Doing Social bookmarking neither good nor bad. It always depends. And also it is not necessary to do on a regular basis. Try to do bookmarking on high domain authority site like below:
    scoopit
    plurk
    reddit
    bookmarkstars
    dailybookmarking
    listbookmarking
    topbookmarkingsite

    Yes. Social bookmarking is good because it can help you to bring you traffic.posting in a heavily trafficked sub on Reddit can get you a lot of clicks and a lot of eyes on-page. Whether or not those are valuable hits is up in the air, but traffic is traffic. The worst social bookmarking sites aren't going to bring you any traffic.

    Yes. Social bookmarking is really good for SEO. It can help you to gain traffic easily on your website. Reddit is one of the important tools in social bookmarking.

    Wow. Looking at all these posts I figured I'd put my two cents in.

    Is it good to do social bookmarking? It was, like 5+ years ago. Now, no. Want to waste time and money and go around social bookmarking pages on your site? Well, have fun but I guarantee you that Google and Bing won't be coming around to pat you on the back for your efforts.

    How do I know this? Because social bookmarking sites aren't even in the top 5 pages of results, they got buried hard. Go ahead and run a test to see if I'm wrong. Google a phrase, or even whatever page you just bookmarked, and then tell me if you can't find a result from a social bookmarking site. I can wait.

    As for SEO, it may have an impact but it is small. Matter of fact, I rarely social bookmarked any of my sites since 2006 and yet I still garner more attention from Google in terms of traffic and ranking. Couldn't possibly have done that from social bookmarking sites.

    Just a thought.
