No doubt you’ve heard about Second Life. It really is a software program created in 2003 that allows users to create avatars and check out a virtual world. Consumers through their unique avatars can socialize with other people, be involved in specific or party tasks, get and exchange home, travel worldwide. Users buy clothing, things, and gestures. There are 18 million new users on 2nd existence.

A fresh organization known as Weopia has had this idea and used it to dating. Their site states permit you to “get an improved sense of the individual”, “work more quickly than internet dating by yourself” and “which will make real life dates doubly successful”.

The concept works like this: you satisfy some one on an internet matchmaking service. In email or about telephone you claim that you go on a virtual date. Certainly you joins Weopia and pays $5. This individual sends an anonymous e-mail invite to another individual. The two of you create an avatar for any big date. You’ll be able to participate in one of several activities – fly a hovercraft, go boating, hang sliding.  You can also sit and “talk” via IM.

The service claims unparalleled confidentiality and security controls.

So, is it creepy? A rather helpful tool? A strange craze? The daring “” new world “”?

Can you use such a service?
