Is Second life a precursor of how business will be conducted in the future?

I think it is doubtful that major business will ever be carried out using 3D virtual reality games like Secondlife. During the early years of such sites many businesses joined to examine how effective these 3D platforms where for conducting business.

Many of them came to the conclusion that there was no great advantage of being inworld.

Second Life is however one of the best and most unique social communication networks so may well prove useful for business meetings and communication between employees.

Did American apparel fail at its business strategy by closing the virtue store in second life?

Recognizing the demographic of Second Life as a prized market

segment, American Apparel saw a unique opportunity for

marketing, sales, and building customer relationships.

Marketing to a youth audience-a broad youth audience,

ages 18-30-is more challenging than ever because it is fragmented.

Marketers cannot put all of their money into one

thing or another, such as television or print. Instead of targeting

passive viewers of such advertising, marketers will have

to try new channels. American Apparel sees the Second Life

world as a platform to actively interact with and sell to

engaged users, thereby developing a relationship with them.

Raz Schionning, director of Web services, became convinced

that the online role-playing game is the market of

tomorrow. These emerging social computing networks of

online communities sharing interests and activities hold the

potential to redefine customer relationship management.

Schionning recalls, "I pitched the idea to the creative team

here-the people who handle our print and traditional marketing."

American Apparel set out on a bold boundary-pushing

experiment to reach a young, tech-savvy audience and to

explore what the future of the Internet might mean for business.

Schionning commented, "When we think about Web

marketing, it makes sense to not just put your money in banner

panels." American Apparel took an experimental

approach, focusing on long-term added value, "not a profitmaking

venture."

What is the difference between teen second life and adult second life?

Adult second Life refers to the main Second Life virtual grid. Access to this grid is restricted to people over the age of 18, whereas teen Second Life refers to the Teen grid created for people aged 13-17. This grid was closed by Linden Lab in 2011 and is no longer available.

The main difference between the two grids was the maturity rating of the content that could be accessed.

What are the risks of Second Life?

The risks of using the Second Life platform vary based on what you see as harmful. In some cases the risks could be becoming addicted, and spending hours online in a virtual world.

Other risks include being offended, as the level of free speech in-world is paramount, and controversial ideas, images, and talk are often abundant in any populated public area.

As far as technological risks, it is not possible to have your computer infected or harmed by any scripted object within the virtual world. The scripts are compiled and run on the server, so you don't execute native code, which would allow for potentially compromising the users machine.

So in summary, the risks of using Second Life are equal to the risks of using any large-scale multi-user web service.

Does second life charge money?

You are able to use Second Life under a free membership, and you can find many freebies available to you in Second Life. However, if you want to be able to own land in Second Life, you will have to pay a membership fee to do that. Even things as simple as uploading a texture or saving a snapshot to your inventory costs money in Second Life, so unless you plan to walk around looking for freebies all day long, you will probably end up putting a bit of money into Second Life.

Is there any other virtual world games like second life that can be used on any computer regardless of graphics?

All of the 3D virtual worlds have minimum system graphics requirements so will not run on all computers regardless of graphics capabilities. Second Life however can be accessed through SLiteChat, this is third party software that allows access to the main grid but without the display of any graphics. It is very visually limited and only provides limited abilities.

This software is not supported by Linden Lab.

Do you have to pay for Second life?

No, the basic game mode in Second Life is free. You will have to pay for a premium account or to buy new clothes, or change hair and skin tone colors if you want them.

To get around this, create a pay pal account, but don't credit it. This allows you to get through sign up. Be ready to contact Second Life's creators if you have problems. They were very helpful when I had trouble signing up.
