    This is the first time I read that social signals are a must for ranking.

    social signals don't help much for ranking ... so its no must to have to rank.

    Social signals don't help much in terms of ranking, I tend to start out with a few while a site is getting indexed just for a bit of diversity.
    If it brings in any traffic = bonus.

    Social signals have no influence on ranking in my opinion, it's merely another source of traffic

    And traffic has an influence on ranking.

    Social signals are good for indexing. Don't know why anyone would think they are a must.

    Social signals have never been a must have for ranking. A nice to have, sure, but never a replacement for good old quality content and backlinks.

    Personally, I have noticed that google plus backlinks are quite powerful if done correctly

    SOcial signals only works better if you are interested in fast indexing overall ranking impact is not preferred.
