Other than academia.edu, what are the best social media websites for researchers and student researchers?

Thank you,

I use Facebook for personal interactions, not academic/professional ones. Sure, a lot of my friends are in academia so they are also on my Facebook, but I don't use this platform to project my "academic image".

I use Twitter mostly for professional interactions.

I keep a LinkedIn profile updated so that people who find me in this way can get the basic pertinent info and be redirected towards my research website. If/When I start looking for work outside of academia, I will probably use this a lot more.
