Social Networking

Social networking applications are not just for finding old friends and keeping up with the new. Social networking sites bridge boundaries and bring people to a common platform where they can meet like-minded people and communicate with them. Sites like Facebook and MySpace are populated with a new generation of sites geared toward scientists, physicians, researchers, and other STEM fields. Social networks allow you to make connections with STEM professionals across the globe and the connections can assist you in securing graduate and post graduate opportunities.

Just as in traditional networking, social networking is important to expanding your opportunities for research, positions, and graduate studies. This website features several networks for science and technology.
