    I don't think social signals were a factor before either, they just help your website looking more legit. For example, a website with thousands (or a bigger number) of backlinks and 0 (or close to 0) social signals doesn't look so right, does it?

    That is old now but essentially what he is saying is that a link from one of those sites does not carry any exceptional weight purely by virtue of being on a large social website like people try to make out.

    What you do get is a link, or links, from a page on a highly authoritative website that in itself probably has a lot of links to it.

    The links / mentions / whatever you get from these sites definitely helps, to say they don't ignores all the evidence to the contrary. They are however not the be all and end all of SEO, they are a part of your SEO efforts.

    I don't think social signals will fade away anytime soon.
    sure, they could adjust the weightage for social signals and how much it impacts the ranking.
