Second Life Entertainment
Second Life entertainment is one of the Second Life site’s main draws for a number of reasons. People log on to express themselves or enjoy fun activities. No matter what your passion, you will find an outlet for it in your second life.
A recent market study focused on Second Life in an attempt to document how people were spending their time online in the virtual world. The study discovered that 80 percent of a member’s time ‘in world’, or inside the virtual world, is spent enjoying Second Life entertainment. This is equivalent to around 18 hours of computer time every week.
In the real world only around 25 percent of the time, is typically spent weekly pursuing entertainment. The vast difference in these numbers was shocking. After reviewing the numbers experts decided Second Life was so popular because it was cheap and travel was not an issue.
Second Life entertainment comes in all shapes and sizes. You can spend time on a quite walk in the park, attend a loud and crazy live music rock concert or participate in adrenaline activities and sports.
Shopping is the most popular online entertainment activity in the virtual realm. Users can shop in member created stores for clothing, accessories, pets, home furnishings, vehicles and more. Other users prefer to spend their money on land. Looking for freebies (free stuff) is also a popular thing to do, especially for new second lifers.
Music and dance clubs are another favorite: Listening to your best DJ, singer or group, chatting with friends, dancing, playing table/quiz games or Sploder (lottery type game), taking part in contests and winning prizes or getting adult related products and services (in adult clubs), are some options that you can find at these locations.
Gaming is another top entertainment option. Playing Zyngo,/Slingo (similar to bingo) or fantasy role playing combat games like: Urban, sci-fi, or middle-age, are also very popular in Second Life.
Also in the top is driving. Second Lifers love driving in virtual space. You can drive all kind of vehicles like: Motorcycles, cars, speedboats, spaceships and submarines. There are also over 100 different entertainment choices for members, many of which you might never experience in the real world. Skydiving, scuba diving, spelunking, kart racing and bungee jumping can all be enjoyed in Second Life.
Why is Second Life so popular? As mentioned earlier Second Life entertainment is cheaper than entertainment in the real world. Another reason for its success is the ease of access. You can enjoy any entertainment venue from the privacy of your own home and don’t have to spend a lot of money either like you would in the real world.
Introverted and quite, extroverted and vivacious – you will find an entertainment venue to suit you. To discover what’s out there simply search for options from the site’s home page or on the Second Life Viewer Interface. You can then enter key words in the corresponding ‘search’ boxes.
“I originally signed up with Second Life because I wanted to hear a concert my favorite band was streaming. I did not think I would ever go back on the site – hey, the membership was free. I was surprised! I loved the social aspects of the site and have now been a member of the site for 3 years,” says CHRange on the Second Life message board. Second Life entertainment is available to both paying and non-paying members.
Start having fun in your second life with almost an unlimited choice of entertainment options!
