I want to ask that does social networks can boost up our ranking. As I've observed that some social networks leaving their links with nofollow, this means they actually do not want their websites to loss the trust in respect of search engines. But they give us no favor but having our links to be there on their websites. So can someone here tell me the reality?
PS:-And please also state that the links with follow tag does have any impact over search engine rankings.

I agree with maximillianos. In the sense you are only using the link for higher search engine placement you probably won't see much benefit (with nofollow beig used). If you have good content and is useful to the members of the social network you want to put links on then you will see a boost in traffic from the links. Hepefully you'll get enoguh traffic that you will gain links this way. Again, in this situation I think it all falls back on your site's content.
