    No, they dont directly improve rankings but you can get some direct traffic from them.

    Whhaaaaat?
    Social signals doesn't count in google's algorithm because it can be manipulated easily, all links can be manipulated though, but Google doesn't have any power over social media so they don't take it in.

    I think it helps build a little trust to google but not much like the guy above said its not a big factor.

    If it's something easily manipulated, it's never a factor. Getting social signals isn't a big task. As the above guy said, they just help in building trust to Google. That's it.

    depends on the type of website you are trying to rank. For example a viral product/ social event would defiantly benefit the website with social media traffic.

    It's good to have social media presence, however I've seen top ranking websites with no social media.

    in fact, it is currently one of the best source through links and other posts that direct to your website or promote your product or service.A good example is Facebook which is a good platform for ads.

    I can say with my little experience that if you create social profiles they will rank higher with your website name in search engines for exact name search. But won't really effect your website ranking. Social bookmarking is great for quick traffic, nothing else.
