Here is another context that would be worth to take into consideration and which is related to the use of social media to support science.
This is what can be referred to as Science 2.0.

This is an area that is open and that has built its own social network. It other words it is not yet "colonized by Facebook". (other sector is job search).
This area can also be considered as a critical component for innovation (in Europe). It is also an area that is relatively rich in terms of models (social networks, open publishing, etc.)

Examples of social networks:
* Mendeley
* ResearchGate
* mysciencework


I feel embarrassed to post so much.
I hope I do not introduce too much noise in this discussion.
On the other hand I believe it is important that our community produce enough material to as to inform the elaboration of a strategy.

Good summary article presenting the different SNS available for the scientist.

Social Networks for Scientists
14 May 2012 | by Laurence Bianchini

New social networks and media are improving the connectivity of researchers, engineers, PhD candidates, post-docs, and students. Today, several offer solutions to problems faced by researchers, but are still often considered time consuming. As an online extension of the work of your team or as a catalyst for new collaborations, each of these networks has its own special features.
