For now, Social networking is considered as one of the best way promoting your product. But make sure you will use it effectively so that your customers will avail your products.

You can't have one without the other. Social media can raise your SEO ranking.

I'm a huge fan of social marketing, because you can build relationships along the way and keep updated with your customers/friends/family all at the same time! (and SEO seems too complicated!)

SEO isn't that complicated once you get the hand of it.

Both are equally important. One ranks you higher in SEPRs. The other one markets you on internet effectively like no other.

I agree with Mindfires' comments. Both Social Media and SEO are important and have their place. They offer different benefits for your company so both should be utilized.
