"Discussions, Comments and Jobs..."

As time passes and new accomplishments are made from day-to-day to different scientific fields, it seems very important for every professional, academic, scientist, end-user, etc., the participation to scientific fora or/and social networking websites.  The convergence of disciplines in certain applications provide significant results and great amounts of information to every interested in this kind of inter-communication.
Scientific social networks

I would suggest two major scientific fora :

- ResearchGate
- LinkedIn

However, there are many more and within different disciplines:

Labroots  (LabRoots is a social networking website for scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals)

- (Doctorshangueout is a personal & professional networking site for Doctors & medical students worldwide)

Biomedexperts  (BiomedExperts brings researchers together and allow them to connect, network, communicate and collaborate online)

Ozmosis  (OzmosisESP provides a cloud based social collaboration and clinical content management platform for hospitals and life science firms)

- Mendeley  (Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research)

It's up to your personnal choice to get connected or not.
