    What significance do social sharing's have when shared to a dead crowd?

    What if there were multiple shares to a dead crowd? Any effect?

    If the crowd is dead; your sharing is also dead!

    It depends what is your objective really. In terms of SEO, it can has a little positive impact as it still represent a public share -> 1 backlink.
    In terms of social engagement, that's worthless

    Right on point.
    You could buy some social shares to look all authoritative.

    I was talking in so perspective. That will be a backlink but will have no ranking factor?

    A lot of people use fake shares to try to index. It also is supposed to make a page appear more popular to Google. No confirmation to if it works well or not for either, but I too occasionally do it to try to make a page look more naturally popular in proportion to its link building.
