mathoverflow

Online communities are the groups of web savvy individuals who share communal interests. A community can be developed with just a single topic or by a bunch of philosophies. A better community binds its members through substantial debates. Mathematics is a very popular communal interest and there are hundreds of online communities formed in both Q&A and debate styles. Some mathematical communities are so immense that they serve two or three discussions every minute. If you are a math student, reader or research scholar then you must join in such places. Beyond sharpening math skills, these communities also help users to connect with other similar minded people. The following communities are the largest on the internet and are always worth joining:
