    For example if i add fake g+ to my website as social signals i understand good can find out if these g+ are real or fake because it's google product and they can check accounts activities and other things.

    But if i add fb shares, tweets, likes is it still possible that they can find out they are fake even if i drip feed it every day with random amounts.
    For example addmefast is good site for social signals and u can setup drip feed, also it's cheap. What do you guys think about it is it safe these days?

    I believe that they can, but SOME fake signals as background noise are ok in my opinion as long as you also have natural social going strong. Just use few.

    I think for every 100 links build 2-5 links that you can forget about

    Google doesn't care as much about fake social signals as they do about fake links. Social signals are still new and volatile, so Google doesn't completely understand them enough to penalise your website over fake tweets.

    If you suddenly have tons of +1s or FB shares which comes mainly from users who have very little on their account except one like or one share, then it MAY draw a flag. Get a strong social profile going. You wouldnt need fake ones then.
