a pat on the back?

ResearchGate is a social media website that imitates features familiar to users of inter-alia LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. Where ResearchGate really scores is that, like any social media platform, it locks members into real-time engagement, patting them on the back, reminding them, constantly refreshing their ratings, and enjoining them to improve their scores.
