How can social media help with link building strategies?

What is the benefit of social media for SEO and backlinks (aside from web traffic generation)? Is social media useful for SEO overall?

Social Media's influence on SEO is almost negligible as the universal commonality of SM back-links diminish any relevnce they once held. There is just one exception ‘Google+’, for obvious reasons, without a G+ profile page your Google indexing results will suffer (a little), but overall there are 100’s of more important SEO techniques to consider ahead of either SM or link building.
