You’ve probably heard about 2nd Life. Really an application program produced in 2003 that allows people to build avatars and check out a virtual world. People through their unique avatars can interact socially with other people, be involved in specific or class activities, purchase and trade house, travel around the world. Users buy clothing, things, and gestures. You’ll find 18 million registered users on next Life.
A business known as Weopia has brought this concept and used it to matchmaking. Their site states allow you to “get an improved feeling of the individual”, “work faster than our married online dating sites by yourself” and “to make actual life dates doubly successful”.
The idea operates in this way: you fulfill somebody on an internet matchmaking service. In mail or on the phone you claim that you choose to go on a virtual big date. Certainly you joins Weopia and will pay $5. This individual directs an anonymous e-mail invite to another person. Both of you create an avatar for any time. You’ll be able to be involved in one of many activities â fly a hovercraft, get sailing, hang sliding. You can also stay and “talk” via IM.
This service membership guarantees unmatched confidentiality and safety controls.
So, is it creepy? A really of use instrument? A strange craze? The courageous “” new world “”?
Might you make use of this type of a service?
