I read here: http://www.seo-simple.com.mx/ that social media are affecting on SEO, but not because of the likes, shares, +1, pins or tweets; social media has an impact on the SEO of a website.

What matters is not the fact that someone "likes" your fanpage or share your content on Facebook, what matters is what happens next: the links, but they are not easy to get.
It's about getting the right people to see your content, and reach more and more people.

Social Media can provide you no-follow links. So social media can't help you to get ranking but it can help you to get huge amount of traffic.

Social Media has nothing to do in affecting SEO because these mediums are usually used to have fast paced publication of new and interesting information but not involving optimization process.

I'll follow your thoughts on that. There are four types of links

(1) Links that help your rankings but don't provide visitors
(2) Links that help your rankings and provide visitors
(3) Links that don't help your rankings and don't provide visitors
(4) Links that don't help your rankings but do provide visitors

In your scenario, example #4 above, do you really get huge amounts of traffic to your website? For example, I see a lot of people on facebook. But when it comes to those same people visiting the corresponding website I personally see little transfer. Sure, a few will click over to the website. But not a huge percentage. And those who actually act, such as make a purchase, is much fewer. In particular when compared with direct traffic or search engine visitors. No comparison, certainly not "huge".

Yes but not so much helpful in organic but can be a good source of referral traffic

You must consider it useful or you will be missing out on extra and maybe crucial traffic. It all helps and is worth the investment of time.
