Social professional networks provide features not available in other networks. For example, LinkedIn and AngelList facilitate professional networking, and GitHub enables committing and sharing code. Such social networks also provide data with information about users, their behavior, interactions and posted content. Here, we aim to foster a deeper understanding of the social professional networks types, definitions, features, analyses and applications while providing a useful taxonomy about their use.
