    Social media sites are huge source for traffic. Many sites provide no follow backlinks. But is there any social media site available which can give traffic as well as quality do follow backlinks to our websites?

    They are all nofollow - but they are still good links to have

    Never seen a do-follow link from such sites either.
    Google knows this - and I think the more beloved / higher traffic the social site (the page containing your link) has the more the backlink weights (even when "nofollow"). When they generate traffic your site you win anyhow...

    Nope, You wont find any good sites that pass pagerank like how you want.

    Post some useful content and people might link to it naturally.

    In Google+, it is possible to get a do follow link. You just need to go to Google+ -> navigate to Profile -> About -> Link and then you can add your URL which is do follow.

    If the visitors visit your website through the social media, this is a direct way of traffic, then do follow is just useful to the search engine.

    Well I think if you are looking for a good quality link from a social media, stop looking for a "link juice" factor because you will get nothing. You can check if you can take advantage of the contents that are being shared across social media sites. That can be a good factor in determining if you are going to have a good link back from a social media site in terms of quality of content and its potential to become viral.

    Social media always gives no-follow link. But Google+ profile link is do-follow link, and almost all social media site gives you no-follow link.

    Marrick makes an excellent point. Instead of thinking "how can I get links", think of how you can use social media to engage with your followers, provide helpful information to your potential clients or customers, and raise awareness of your brand. You want to use social media in a way that will encourage people to think of you when they need the products or service you provide. Of course, links are still part of Google's algorithm, so sprinkling a few links here and there will certainly help, but links should not be your primary purpose.

    Social media sites are only to drive traffic and reach people so that they come to know about business.

    Google Profiles can value you back-links. Create profiles and add custom links with relevant anchor text.
    Google Places also deliver a decent amount of traffic but you have a physical office presence to create local business listing.

    Here are few more social sites where you create back-links;

    LinkedIn
    Digg
    Reddit
    Stumble
    Squidoo

    In my opinion, Social networks increase traffic significantly but customers from these networks seem to be not potential enough

    Do you have, or have you heard of someone who has, experience with this type of situation? Perhaps you, or they, are not targeting the right people, or the right sites. Or maybe you, or they, are not participating enough? You have to be active so that your potential clients or customers will see you so often, you are who they think of when they need your type of service.

    yes! all social media sites have Nofollow links, all we know everybody need dofollow links hare but in Google eyes Nofollow or Dofollow both links are very importent, Facebook, twitter or Google Plus are the best way to gain links or trafic!

    Hi Stevex,

    We've had good luck with Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram for clients with results in that order as far as traffic. Twitter also gets some results, but you really have to nurture the leads there and be more active than on the other sites, even compared to Facebook.

    We've also noticed that some of the posts on Facebook will be ranked in search and come up there. The posts on Pinterest that use keywords also come up in search. We find that to be very valuable for clients since these posts take up more spots in search for the site.

    There are many social bookmarking sites on the Web, but the majority of them are not really worth your attention, because you'd barely get any direct Web traffic from them.
    Ther are some social media sites.eg. google+,youtube,pinterest,tumbler, WordPress etc.

    I appreciate all the answers but I want to share that every time anybody Re-tweets your tweet on Twitter you get Do-follow back-link and same in the case of Tumblr, we get do-follow back-link when anybody reblogs our post.

    All social media sites are nofollow links, but social media sites can increase your website traffic. You can easily promote your business information and product by the users. there are many social media sites but the best sites are Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, Tumblr, Linkedin, Youtube, My space, hi5, Meetme and Digg. All these website have more traffic and high page rank. I have found many of social networking website but no any of social networking website provide DO-Follow back-links for the website.

    I don't think that any social media website gives a dofollow backlink. You will get nofollow backlinks from all the social media websites.
