Wolfram Research, the company behind the computing system Mathematica and the “computational knowledge engine” Wolfram Alpha, has created a new social networking site for its users.

The Wolfram Community aims to be the digital home for discussions on topics related to Mathematica and other Wolfram products in a group setting. There is a stream of discussions and users can join these comment threads and ask questions, as well as share their ideas. The site includes different groups such as computer science, visual arts, calculus, recreation and physics. Users can also suggest their own ideas for groups if they feel the need.

The community includes people from various backgrounds including scientists, researchers, engineers, developers, designers and students. So far the community has almost 1,300 members. To join, users are asked to say hello and introduce themselves on the welcome thread.
