OpenSim Virtual remained the largest community focused specifically on OpenSim.

Largest metaverse communities on Google Plus

Google Plus has become the go-to destination for OpenSim users because of the platform’s convenient sharing features, support for discussions, videos, photos, and events, and the fact that Google Plus dropped their real name policy last summer.

This month’s 15 largest communities:

  • Olantica has been closed for some time now, see my post date in it to confirm-))

    • Thanks, I just marked it closed.

      • Yea, they split into Zandramas, which is now Zangrid…and TangleGrid, which I am sure you know but others might not. Hope you are feeling better.

  • Great Canadian Grid went from about 550 to 699 which would put it 3rd on your list.

    DigiWorldz grew by over 200 with an increase of over 300 regions starting 1, March 2015. We can make the list next time ok?….lol

    • This is a list of online social communities…. Are there any for Digiworldz?

      • Michael Sietz

        Ok, can I plead sleep deprivation here?…lol Reading is FUNdamental

      • markjohnwiseman

        Can we plead that Digiworldz IS an online social community?

        • Technically, yes, lol!

          But the purpose of this list is for folks looking for a quick way — without going in-world — to find out what’s happening. And for event and content promoters to get the news out to everybody, not just the residents of their own grid.

    Well Maria you should include FACEBOOK communities also ….I have facebook page and my facebook profile and those combined sum up to almost 2500 people plus the google plus one that I have 132 members now.

    • I can’t find your Facebook page. Can you post a link?

      • Alex Ferraris
        • Alex — I can see both sets of links. But they don’t go anywhere!

          • Alex Ferraris

            Try again please because I clicked on them and they took me to the facebook

          • Okay, they work now — but one is a personal page that shows your friends, the other is a page that shows “likes” but not “members.” Facebook *does* have a group functionality, right, where people can be members of a group?

          • Alex Ferraris

            I dont know. I will look into that but the PAGE does represent the grid aviworlds plus all the announcements go to whomever liked the page. So there is a connection there.
            Same with my personal page which does represent me Alex Ferraris.

  • Alex Ferraris

    Why my post with the links you requested MARIA was taken down?

    • please go away. you tried and failed, let there be no doubt, you totally suck balls so go away.
