Online Virtual World
The online virtual world offers users a wide variety of cultural activities, entertainment options, educational classes, business and networking opportunities. Second Life, the most popular online world, has everything from Harvard classes to the Nike Corporation to offer members. You can enter this amazing world online and have plenty of fun interacting with other site members.
With such a variety of virtual world options it is hard to decide which one to join. You may be looking for a virtual world that is based on your interests or hobbies but you would also like to be exposed to new people and new things. Linden Lab solved this dilemma by allowing members to create their own environments in Second Life.
Unlike other online worlds, Second Life is easy to navigate and you will not become disoriented. User friendly controls and helpful members can keep you headed in the right direction. The ease of entering and enjoying the Second Life virtual world is one of the many reasons it has become so popular with so many users.
One of the main advantages of the site is the ability to create your own space. For example, if you love horses you can open an equestrian center. People will come to ride and you will instantly make new friends. You can bring your real life idea to Second Life easily. If you love a specific place, object or activity you can reproduce it in Second Life.
Don’t feel creative? That’s OK too. Thousands of users have created amazing venues for you to enjoy. Art museums, galleries, athletic fields, clubs, shopping malls, role playing games can all be found in their unique virtual environment.
The users of the new online virtual world will benefit from joining a group. You can use Second Life’s search options to find a group that interests you and send an IM asking to join. Chat groups can be found on almost any subject. Groups allow you to make great friends.
Some of the groups can be joined automatically, for free or paying an enrollment fee, using the “join” button found in the group’s general folder. In this folder you will also find the group: name, founder’s name, insignia, charter, list of owners & members and preferences.
Some groups in the online virtual world offer their members freebies. In Second Life there are even more ways to get free stuff. Many big businesses roll out new products such as software for members to try and review. Authors give away books, and whole warehouses can be found giving away everything from kitchen supplies to building materials. It is worth your while to look for areas and groups offering freebies.
Find any basic object as a freebie in Second Life: Buildings, vehicles, avatars, animations, scripts and many more. There are several regions dedicated exclusively to freebies where you can get anything for free.
The online virtual world hosts fabulous events too. Second Life has an events calendar that is frequently updated to show members what is coming up in the next few months. You can easily join the event or activity right from the calendar by clicking the link.
You will find classical music concerts, gallery openings, social get-togethers, eLearning classes, gaming proposals, and launch parties – there are new events every day. Users can even host their own events to meet others.
Groups, freebies, and events are just a few reasons online virtual worlds rock. Take a few minutes to visit one today. You will be floored by everything offered. Almost anything you normally do in your real life can be re-created in your virtual life!
