    Is everything but Facebook worthless? (for a content site) Do you need anything else besides a good Facebook presence? If you're going to get the SEO rankings anyway from Facebook alone, why go to all the trouble of building pages on all the other social networks?

    It depends on what you are trying to achieve. There are certain things that can't be achieved through Facebook alone but I have read many on the Internet making money through Facebook.

    Define worthless?

    Google +1 and Facebook likes/shares, along with backlinks have shown to be one of the correlating ranking factors for 2013 so far, according to This Source, and google +1s are the ones that have shown the highest correlative value with high rankings.

    I so suggest you read the whitepaper out, and while those are only correlative links, they are still valuable in my opionion

    Depends on what your doing and who you are targeting! I use Facebook more for building community around a small business. That will(you hope) generate more business from word of mouth.

    Using just Facebook is like advertising on just ABC. Okay its the biggest, but why ignore cable tv or radio? They all bring you potential customers, so you should be using the sites that your ideal customer uses.

    And the last one is I personally dont think Facebook is going to make or break your rankings by itself! The market is segmented, and you cant be on every site -- so pick the best ones to get you customers!

    Yeah it's like fishing. Not all fish bite at the same bait. Sometimes you use a net & sometimes you gotta drill down & use a specific lure to nail the whale so to speak
