Second Life, and any online virtual community like it, can be a social lifeline to those who may be more isolated, marginalized or cut off in real life. There is a lot said these days about how virtual life is causing us to interact with each other less…but few people talk about the flip side of that. For many of us, virtual life can help us gain connections we lack in RL.
It’s so great to watch our avatars dance close, then pull away and swing around and do impossible things! And dancing is major Chat Time! Whether just one on one with Lisa, or in a group at Skybound. Dancing allows folks to let their hair down and vent and tease.
