Social Networks and Academic Research

The world is getting faster and faster, but still the most reputation in research is in printed journals.
Now it seams that the times change. There is an upcoming development of social networks for researchers.
These are not like Facebook with sharing pics and useless stuff to procrastinate. Instead the research networks focus on publications and the answer of small research questions in collaborative manner. (see also German Article of Welt-Online)
So check it out, it might become an advantage soon.
