LabRoots launches new social networking site for scientists
Wednesday, October 3, 2012
LabRoots, a social networking site designed to connect all science verticals, has launched a new website.
Scientists from around the world can go to LabRoots.com at no cost, to begin building relationships with other scientists and increasing their influence within the scientific community. Aside from giving scientists a place to share their expertise and learn from one another, LabRoots offers the latest advanced data mining tools to improve scientist-to-scientist communication.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of the new LabRoots website,” said CEO and founder Greg Cruikshank. “LabRoots has been around for five years now, but with the enormous growth in social networking websites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, we needed an overhaul. LabRoots now has the tools, audience and content which make it the ultimate destination for scientists to disseminate original ideas and information and to stretch the boundaries of science.”
Features of the LabRoots networking site are extensive and members are able to review over 30 million documents of publication metadata; view hundreds of live news feeds which are updated daily; watch and post videos, images, files and links; post reviews of publications, products, companies, press releases and more; access thousands of scientific events, conferences, seminars and webinars; find and post jobs from all over the world; follow companies and institutions or start their own company page; and connect, follow and message colleagues and peers.
