Social Networks for Developers

Social media is a great place to collaborate, discover and share. I am an active user of some social media communities like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn where i have joined groups made for developers to keep myself updated, share and discover about the market trends. I am always looking for places and tools to make my life easier as a developer. Here are some of the social media communities just made for developers. These tools will help you in the development run. Enjoy!
