It seems quite interesting and with a specific target: Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share and follow research. Academics upload their papers to share them with other academics in over 100,000 research areas. They can also follow other academics, and see new papers and other research updates from those academics in their News Feeds.
Academics can register (for free) themselves and their institution, upload a number of documents: a CV, a paper, information, keywords to be indexed and searched through engines, and so on. It is also possible to connect Academia to the personal Facebook page or to the institution’s (or group) page as well. In addition, the user can edit the personal page andadd an affiliation from there, including multiple ones.
