Mobile optimization is extremely important aspect of internet marketing, The recent research says that Mobile searches are eve more than the searches you do on your PC/laptop. On the other side SMO is equally important.

Default Apples & Oranges..

Hey Mindfires..

A mobile optimized website is a must for a "visitor" who accesses your website using a mobile device.

Social Media Marketing is driving the visitor to your website. Now they both go hand-in-hand.

If you get visitors to a website which is not mobile optimized he will probably leave. However, if you do not have any traffic coming to you website, then you probably don't even need a website!

Both are different things, One is a platform to advertise your business. Where as the other is a device to access it. Your question rather should have been "Is the mobile optimization of social media marketing necessary or not?"

Both! These two have distinct verticals, how you are connecting it is little messy. Making a mobile friendly website is the need of current trend as number of people using traditional devices for browsing internet is increasing with a very high rate.
Social media marketing increases the value of brand, people start talking about you..... it also increase the trust
As a business you need both, 1. Reach and 2. Trust for final goals.

Require inputs on this with relevant reasons.
They are both equally important.

Many people are using their phones, so mobile optimization is extremely useful.

I agree with the above. Mobile optimization is extremely useful because the number of people accessing internet through mobile are increasing each day.
