When you share links on social media sites like tumblr, Reddit, stumbleupon, pinterest, even on facebook and twitter, you get backlinks to your site. Backlinks are basically two types: dofollow and nofollow. Dofollow backlink is good where as nofollow backlinks do not have any value. What kind of backlinks do you get from social media sites?

Backlinks from the different social media sites are mostly nofollow. Those sites are not good at passing their "juice" to any other site. But for them like getting the "juice". When you link, expect a nofollow but of course the advantage is traffic.

Thank you very much for explaining, I was also wondering about social media links. So when you share your link on social networking sites and social book marking sites, you will get a nofollow links. Since the links are nofollow they don't pass the link juice, thus, they do not help you in search engine ranking.
