It doesn't.

 

There are some benefits to be had from re-tweets and sharing (but you need to really know what you are doing and you need thousands of visitors) but in general you won't see any improvement in your ranking no matter how often or where you post.

There is a slight exception to that - if people follow you on Google+, they are more likely to see links belonging to you or that you've endorsed.

How can social media influence seo rankings?

 

Did you mean social media directly affecting search engine results position (serps)? Social Media IMO is online marketing not search engine optimisation, you can 'optimise' your tweet to increase the conversion but this will not adjust true serps (unbiased / incognito). There is slight 'maybe' here is some sort of residual authority, just as nofollow links still carry some sort of signal, just not the same as a full fat links.

 

Can social media affect the serps a user sees? Yes, being logged in to say Google or some other social media channel will often trigger some sort of difference in search results to the user, take for example the the difference between my screen shot and the OP on this thread, they got 'Peas & Beans' and I got 'Potatoes'.

Social media doesn't influence SEO rankings, but it helps to improve site visitors and popularity.

I'm going to say NO, it doesn't effect rankings directly but having active social profiles and a social fortress builds trust in the eyes of Google. Again though you should be looking at social in a different light, use it to drive traffic to your website and use things like Facebook ads.  Doing all that can naturally help as people begin to share your content and link back to you.

Social media has indirect influence on SEO. To answer your question, it doesn't influence rankings directly. But social media helps in getting more visibility and contributes in brand building, which later helps websites getting direct visitors from search engines.
