Excerpt: What if I tell you now you will be able to lead another life and have another husband or wife!? About 6 months ago while doing a research on cyber culture I came across this social game called Second Life.
Pros: good for socialization and money making
Cons: one might hurt themselves by entering into a long distance virtual relationship
Excerpt: So, 2 and a half years ago I decided to create an account on Second Life after seeing an interview on television of this couple that had met and married in real life after originally meeting on Second Life. How does this 'game' work.
Pros: it's fun, a good way of meeting new people, can do what you like and life the second life you want
Second Life = Not just pixel porn and virtual dating

Excerpt: I joined Second Life in March 2007 after my mother passed me a magazine article detailing women running businesses in-world and owning land. I thought that sounded right up my street despite not being a gamer so I joined up.
Pros: No bar on creativity, possibility to meet some great people
Cons: Steep learning curve at beginning, a good internet connection helps and graphics card
Excerpt: I have been playing Second Life for around 3 years now. When you first start it can be very daunting because you are in a huge world with no money, however you can buy money but I made my own. In those 3 years it has been quite a rough ride.
Excerpt: Secondlife is an online world, which is mainly user generated in its content. It is owned and created by Linden Lab Research (known as LL) a san francisco based company. Users, known as residents, can log in using the downloadable viewer and use the "metaverse" in almost any way that they wish.
Pros: learn new skills, meet cool people, express yourself, have fun, anything is possible .
Cons: some people are not what they seem, can get addictive .
Excerpt: I got this game originally because my Grandad had it but he gave it to me as a gift. I had played lots of army first person shooter games before, but never one where you can control an entire army! This tells you allready that this was indeed my first experience at this type of game.
Pros: great game play, good graphics, three different forces, super online play
Excerpt: Second Life is an internet phenomenon that has sprung up in the last few years. It is basically an online community of people, who can talk and instant message one another. There are apparently over a million residents, although around a tenth of this uses it on a regular basis.
Pros: Huge worlds, lots of people to meet, can create almost anything .
Cons: Can be overwhelming, some people aren't sociable, not to some people's taste
Excerpt: Ahhhhh, Second Life... where to start? Probably from the beginning. I have now been playing Second Life for nearly 4 years-- my fourth anniversary is the 30th March. In March 2004 I read a review in a PC magazine about Second Life.
