From an SEO perspective, your social media can help provide the exposure to your content, that results in other people linking to it from their websites or blogs.

Brand awareness, greater association of a brand with a particular product or category and news are just a few of many things that can have an effect on search rankings.

The result of this can be improvements in the things that do influence SEO directly, such as backlinks and brand-associated searches.
