This paper gives an overview of different social networks and their tools that can be used for research in various disciplines. The focus is on those social networks whose infrastructure is particularly suitable for research and teamwork. We examined their functionality, benefits, method of interaction and collaboration between users. Despite not doing any statistics and prove, social networks helped us with doing a lot of researche. That helped us ensuring ourselves that at the moment, the social networks are the best way of doing research work and make the academic work a lot of more easier.
