Secrets to Social Networks for Second Lifers

Social networks are for socializing and meeting like-minded people online that you can chat with and possibly create bonds and friendships. That being said, my post will focus on how a Second Life resident can use social networks (presumably using their SL pseudonym) to promote their business or brand.

Secrets to Social Networks for Second Lifers

I’ve shared a list of all of the social networks I am on and the reasons I use them on my social media page. I often get people asking me, how do you keep up with all your networks? The truth of the matter is, I don’t. It’s impossible to keep up with every single social network out there and read everyone’s posts and be actively involved in all of them. However, even if I can’t keep up with every single person that I follow on all the networks, I still read and interact quite a bit. I believe it’s the same for most of the people using social media regularly.

These are the networks I will be discussing in this post: My.SecondLife.com, Flickr, Google+, Twitter, Facebook and Plurk. I am not going to cover the networks that are run by SL residents such as, SLUniverse, 2ndHub, SLX Connect because I don’t use them often, so not familiar with them.

Exodus Viewer

Since Kirstens Viewer is no longer available, you guys have been contacting me asking which viewer I’m now using. Therefore I thought I would do a video tutorial of my recent favorite viewer, Exodus Viewer. I’ve been using Exodus consistently since November 10th when I did this plurk about it. I had downloaded it but […] Continue reading →

Flickr Content Filters Tutorial

To view the above restricted picture on my flickr stream, check your safe search settings. A couple of days ago I discovered that my account on flickr was flagged, therefore marked as restricted. That basically means my account would be inaccessible to people that did not have a flickr account, were not over 18 and […] Continue reading →
