Social Networking sites like MySpace and Facebook have received lots of press for capturing the attention of young people and changing the social landscape of college campuses and K-12 schools . Although a few scientists have MySpace and/or Facebook accounts, but many would be uncomfortable networking in these virtual environments due to their focus on students and youth culture.
Enter Nature Network, a virtual community (managed by Nature Publishing Group) that allows you to create and join blogs, social groups, and discussions centered on your scientific interests. Read the About The Network page for a detailed description of this initiative. The site is brand new and ripe for contribution.
