Second Life

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Second Life is 3D virtual world filled entirely by the creations of its users. The virtual world can be accessed freely via Linden Lab's own client programs or via alternative third-party viewers. Second Life users create virtual representations of themselves, called avatars, and are able to interact with places, objects and other avatars. They can explore the world (known as the grid), meet other residents, socialize, participate in both individual and group activities, build, create, shop and trade virtual property and services with one another.
