Second Life, launched in mid 2003, as the name speaks is an online virtual world. The service was launched by Linden Labs, a San Francisco-based company. Within next 10 years Second Life, expanded it’s reach to over a million regular users. Although one would assume the service to be similar to online multi player games but company states it to be completely different, with no set goal objectives.
Users, what they call ‘Residents’ create ‘Avatars’ to represent themselves in the virtual second world named ‘Grid’. Residents can typically perform virtual actions like buying & selling properties, interacting with other resident, participating in activities, building shops & what not.
