From Wikipedia:

"Second Life is an online virtual world developed by Linden Lab. It was launched on June 23, 2003. A number of free client programs, or Viewers,[1][2] enable Second Life users, called Residents, to interact with each other through avatars. Residents can explore the world (known as the grid), meet other residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, and create and trade virtual property and services with one another. Second Life is intended for people aged 16 and over,[3] and as of 2011 has about one million active users.[4]"
From me:

"Hi. I appreciate your kind offer of friendship, but I prefer to wait until I've actually met and spoken with someone before adding them to my Friends List. An alternative to "Friending" someone is to "Follow" them. I welcome "Followers." The button for that is on the right next to "Add Friend" on your Feed profile.  Best wishes to you in your Second Life adventures! Maybe I will see you inworld one day. Until then... enjoy!"

  1. There is a plethora of SL 'help' related blogs and people. I think most of the newer people signing up really don't want to spend time in-world, I think they prefer the feeds. Age?

  2. Every once in a while someone sees the inworld pics and asks how to get there or inworld.

  3. Age seems to be a feed issue. I've seen people claiming to be 10 and 12-year olds on the Feeds. I've also seen people posting hard core, extreme fetish, XXX pics and captions on the Feeds in public areas.

  4. I get asked about how to get inworld and how to post pics to the feed. A lot. So this ^^^ and this >>> http://leeherevw.blogspot.com/2012/03/posting-to-profile-feed.html.

    I also get a lot of Friend Requests from people I've never heard of or spoken to, so I say this fairly often:

    "Hi. I appreciate your kind offer of friendship, but I prefer to wait until I've actually met and spoken with someone before adding them to my Friends List. An alternative to "Friending" someone is to 'Follow' them. I welcome 'Followers.' Best wishes to you in your Second Life adventures! Maybe I will see you inworld one day. Until then... enjoy!"

    all comes with being a prolific feed whore having so much fun. ;-)

  5. Me too Lee. Perhaps too many friend requests. I tell them to follow me on the feeds and post into me - participate and converse before I friend you. I really worry about the age of many. I DO NOT want 16 yr. old friends.
