CNR@wOrK - a Social Network for CNR community

Social network sites (SNSs) are increasingly attracting the attention of academic and industry researchers intrigued by their affordance and reach. Most website, like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and so on, connect people that don’t know each other based on shared interests, political views, photos, videos and in general important part of life. Some sites cater to diverse audiences, while others attract people based on common language or shared racial, sexual, religious, or nationality-based identities. Social networking websites could be harnessed for immense benefit to the scientific sector. A scientific social network allows scientists to share ideas, details of their current research and freely distribute their results. It would reduce wasteful scientific redundancy, for instance, by preventing scientists from doing experiments others have done before them, and it would also enable cooperation between groups across the world. In this Technical Report we present our SNS platform called CNR@wOrK and discuss about its developments and future improvements.
