Two Must Do’s In Second Life Now

September 2, 2008 - 2 Comments

1. Get your Second Life Facebook account activated.Second Life on Facebook There are two applications that are relatively easy to communicate with your friends on Facebook either in RL or SL. Second Friends is tailored to work on your Facebook profile once you have added the app on Facebook and acquired a personal key at a SL kiosk on Eduserv Island. This will allow you to feature your Avatar photo on your RL Facebook profile and check on your friend’s status in SL.Second Life Link on FacebookThe set up and app functions are basically the same as Second Friends but goes a few steps farther. In this case there are two ways to get access to your personal key. Either in SL on Facebook or in RL. Your friends in Facebook get the opportunity if they wish to join SL from Facebook. You can now have the choice to contact friends from RL or SL as well see if they are on or offline and post the home of your favorite SL landmark in your Facebook profile. (This will get interesting when some one flings some food). LOL2. Attend SLCC 2008 VirtuallySecond Life Community ConventionThe 2008 SLCC will happen in Tampa, Florida from September 5th – 7th.

  1. Sir,Thanks for the tips. I could find some newer version (easy to move) face book application also from facebook developer blog. But it was a great read. I would like to know whether it’s allowed to take the feed to my blog, I ‘d be more than happy If I can link to this post ( not sure how to do that, let me know if I’m permitted to publicly show the link). Any ways subscribing right the way.Thanks.

  2. Thanks for the tips. RE: SL and SLCC, I thought folks might be interested in a new video I’ve posted. It’s the first in a series telling the story of how a U.S. government agency gets into Second Life–the trials, tribulations and triumphs of buying land, building offices and conducting business in a virtual world through the federal contracting process, rules against downloading almost anything to government computers, applying federal office decorum to avatars and in-world behavior.
