[Objective] This paper examines the content using behavior of an academic social network system. [Methods] First, we collected popular blog posts from Sciencenet.cn. Second, we classified these contents by their features. Finally, the user-content relationship and content contributors’ characteristics were explored with the help of analysis of variance and co-relation tests. [Results] We found that users were more interested in the posts exchanging opinion, as well as those sharing teaching and research experience. Meanwhile, there was a significant correlation between the number of comments and recommendations most posts received. [Limitations] We studied one academic social network system in Chinese and only analyzed its users’ reading behaviors. More research is needed to investigate other behaviors. [Conclusions] Many users exchange views on the academic social network system. These readers are more likely to recommend posts with their own comments to others.
