Ok, a pretty simple question.

I have read lots of things about how social media can help your website rank higher in Google, however i don't really understand how.

Is it because for example if somewhere shares your website on their Facebook news feed, Googlebot can crawl these news feeds and if it sees someone has shared your website, it thinks this site must be worth sharing and hence it acts as a positive point towards your website?

if the above is true, it almost sounds like the way links count towards your ranking.

thanks.

It is very much like that. But more so it's that people signed into their networks and also searching google will see their friends recommendations first.
