How valuable are backlinks from social media websites?

How does Google rate links from websites like Twitter or Facebook? Does anybody know how important the backlinks from Facebook, twitter, and co are? Is it a ranking factor to get good links within these platforms?

The answer to this question is that Google treats all links equally. The only thing that makes a difference in the site’s reputation. However, with Twitter and Facebook, there might be some issues with the pages that aren’t made public on Facebook. There are also nofollow links on Twitter, meaning that Google cannot crawl them, meaning they do not contribute to PageRank.
