You’ve probably heard about Second Life. It really is an application program produced in 2003 which allows consumers to build avatars and explore an online globe. Consumers through their avatars can interact socially with others, take part in specific or group tasks, purchase and exchange home, vacation worldwide. Consumers buy clothing, items, and gestures. You can find 18 million new users on 2nd Life.
An innovative new company known as Weopia has had this idea and applied it to online dating. Their site claims to lets you “get a better sense of the person”, “work more quickly than online dating by yourself” and “to produce actual life dates two times as successful”.
The style operates like this: you meet somebody on an online matchmaking service. In email or in the cellphone you claim that you are going on a virtual day. Certainly one of you joins Weopia and pays $5. This individual delivers an anonymous mail invite to the other person. You both create an avatar for your day. You’ll be able to take part in one of several activities â fly a hovercraft, get sailing, hang gliding. You can also stay and “talk” via IM.
This service membership pledges unmatched confidentiality and safety controls.
Therefore, so is this creepy? A really helpful device? A strange fad? The daring new world?
Can you utilize such something?
