The networking site you ask for, seems to be the IAEP list, located at
This is what visitors can read about this list:
"It's an education project."
(1) Learning practice and theory need to evolve as technology evolves; we are discussing constructionist (and other learning theories) research and practice;
(2) We are engaging in an open dialog between the overlapping communities of software developers and educators;
(3) We are guiding Sugar software development, as it serves as a tangible structural underpinning for the application of 1 and 2 above; and
(4) We are examining and discussing Sugar's educational importance.
As in other lists, there is a choice of language. Unfortunately there are only two choices in this list, English and German. I don´t think the reader´s choice makes much of a difference but, for the first time visitor might not be that clear. It might be interpreted that postings in other languages are not welcome. I don´t know if that is the case or not. Most of the students in OLPC deployments speak Spanish and so do their teachers.
The OLPC-Sur list favored by many educators, offers English and Spanish for language choices.
You ask about social networks. Many teachers write and read postings in the same world-wide networks everyone knows such as Facebook and Twitter. From the messages I read there, neither of them seems to be a venue conducive to any serious discussion about any subject.
