That is a good idea, people can use that section to network with other members.

Make sure you add some social buttons to your forum and also encourage members to use them. Example, we have some social buttons in the top right hand corner of this forum besides ones in the posts.

If your members have a lot of followers then sometimes this is a great way to get signups by focusing on social networking. New forums take awhile to build up a good userbase and get a lot of signups weekly.
