Like Facebook, for Academics

Introducing Academia.edu, a social networking site that I got to know about last week. The idea is pretty much based on online social networking principles, except instead of superpoking one another you can link up to academics around the world, searching by institution, or research interest. Good for hooking up with peers and finding potential collaborators… or perhaps saying you’re in the same social network as Stephen Hawking.
