How to maximize the social media signal for my new pages?

I`m going to move a website to a different domain. I do have pages with 100+ FB likes and many tweets and G+. It seems that it is not possible to move these likes, regardless the 301 a plan to use. 

So basically, every page will have zero likes and shares again. Regarding SEO, is there something I can do to maximize the social media signal for my new pages? Or is the effect of social signals still that low that is does not matter much?

    the second one.

    It`s also possible to argue that the effect of social signals is just an illusion and a worthless buzzword.
    Just think about this: if you were a Google engineer... how much would you trust a signal that doesn`t switch choerently to the new URL?
