    Stupid question but...

    For example, if I have a website that sells chocolate. Would owning twitter/chocolate, facebook/chocolate, and pinterest/chocolate improve my SEO even though Google say they don't follow social media links?

    Obviously, if you incude your username or product name in url, it will help to drive more traffic to your website. When your website will rank on SERP it also tell to the users what type of products or service you are selling. So it's better to hire some professionals when we create social media pages for our business.

    Of course it would help social profiles do provide good link juice.

    Those social media profiles will rank higher for that keyword, but it will not actually increase the rank of your website. But they will definetly generate more traffic.

    Yes, more likes / followers more possibility to get a social media profile into the top ranking at Google for targeted keyword. You can add backlinks to get the max result.
