Here is something a friend introduced me too. It's called "Avatar Life" and social media sight just for avatars. It doesn't just service Second Life but seems to cover all worlds including Open Sim to IMVU.

Avatar Life is a social networking service intended specifically for users of virtual worlds and grids.

While other social networks don’t consider virtual life avatars “real people”, we understand just how real they can be to their users as well as friends in the various virtual worlds.​

Didn't the Lab once buy a site like that and immediately shut it down?

I don't know if they shut it down, but it certainly didn't take off.

Avatars United. I had to search for it. LL bought it in January 2010 and closed it in September 201. I assume they got something out of the deal. Probably some ropey old code they could integrate into SL :)

Wasn't that the period where LL was dreaming that SL would become a sort of 3D Facebook or something?

And now Facebook is trying to become Second Life.

Time is a flat circle, or something like that.
