LinkedIn is also great, the topics span a wide spectrum and you can really learn a lot from the other members.

One caution - every post you make should be professional. If a sarcastic comment comes to mind, or silly response, type it in Notepad and save it on your desktop. Don’t post it publicly. And, respect others, don’t ask for help for a site that people may find offensive, remove any identifying content and focus on the technical issue.
