6 Best Social Networks for Math Majors
Are you a math major looking for some social networks to join? If you are one, you are at the right place. In this article, I have listed some of the best social networks for math majors that you join.
Math or Mathematics is not as difficult as it is thought to be. Mathematical Patterns, Structures, Geometry and their use in everyday life make it beautiful.
‘Math majors’ term generally includes Math students, Math professors and researchers or Mathematicians. The internet has always been a tonic for learners, and the whole internet is supposed to be a social network in which one person shares and others read, one asks & others answer.
There are thousands of social networks (and growing) where you enjoy your days, share fun etc. However, there are only a few social (mathematical) networks that are completely focused on math and related sciences. But these are brilliantly good enough to demonstrate the wisdom of mathematicians.
I have tried to list my favorite social networking websites on mathematics. Please have a read and give feedback.

Mathematics Stack Exchange is a website dedicated to all types of mathematical discussions. You can ask questions, give answers, comment on questions and vote for them. Registration is very easy and takes seconds. Depending on your work, you are given ‘reputations’. Depending upon some special works, you are also given some privileges.
This is a free, community driven Q&A for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It is a part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A websites, and it was created through the open democratic process defined at Stack Exchange Area 51.
This subreddit is probably one of the smartest parts of reddit.com. Here you can ask questions, share links and discuss math-related topics.
This subreddit is for discussion on mathematical links and questions
Is WordPress.com a social network? And that too for mathematicians?
I think the answer is ‘yes.’ WordPress.com support LaTeX formatting and has attracted many students, researchers and math bloggers to head to WordPress.com
In addition to these blogs:
- Terence Tao’s blog “What’s New“,
- Gower’s Blog,
- Gil Kalai‘s Blog “Combinatorics and More“,
- Q. Yuan’s Blog “Annoying Precision“,
- A. Matthew’s Blog “Climbing Mount Bourbaki“,
- Peter Cameron’s blog,
- Richard Wiseman’s blog and
- RJ Lipton’s blog “Gödel’s Lost Letter and P=NP”
You can find 1000s of blogs on the keyword Math here → https://wordpress.com/tag/math
This works as same as math.stackexchange.com do but there is a difference between levels. On Math Overflow, you can ask and discuss only research level topics.
MathOverflow runs on Stack Exchange, the hosted service that provides the same software as the popular programming Q&A site Stack Overflow. The hosting cost is paid from the research funds of our generous benefactor, Ravi Vakil of Stanford University.
mathblogging.org is an excellent aggregator of Math Blogs, in which blogs are divided into several types depending on their content, like research, pure, applied, by date, by name etc. The people behind this project are Felix, Fred and Peter.
Mathblogging.org is designed as a convenient place to check on the mathematical blogosphere.
The arXiv is an archive for electronic preprints of scientific papers in the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, computer science, quantitative biology and statistics, which can be accessed via the world wide web. In many fields of mathematics and physics, almost all scientific papers are self-archived on the arXiv.
