The Adult Metaverse community on Google Plus was the fastest-growing OpenSim community over the last two months, gaining 121 new members for a new total of 866 users.

OpenSim Virtual was in second place, with 108 new members for a new total of 1,511. This meant that OpenSim Virtual comfortably retained its place as the largest OpenSim-focused community on Google Plus.

The Adult Metaverse was the second largest, followed by Virtual Identity, OSgrid.org, and Kitely Virtual.

Only one community lost members, and that was DigiWorldz, but that is likely because the community moved to a new address.

Largest metaverse communities on Google Plus

Google Plus is an attractive place for OpenSim discussions because of its easy integration with group calendars, a range of notification options, and the fact that Google dropped their real names policy last summer.

  • Yes, but everytime I go look at “Second Life and other Virtual Worlds” it is full of advertising for stuff in SL, which is fine if that is what you like, but for true help from a variety of knowledgeable people as well as pure OS events and issues, OpenSim Virtual is the very best place to at least be a member of to add it to one’s browsing time, if not to do one’s own contributions in the sharing way many of us like.

    For me personally since I focus on Hyperverse things only nowadays, the Hyperverse Destinations as well as Hypergrid Events as well as a few associated similar Hyperverse places are key to keeping up with much of what is going on.

    I still dont understand why Google Plus is the main focus .
    Facebook has by far the most virtual worlds users..
    AviWorlds facebook page and now group even beat opensim virtual.
    By the way Opensim Virtual seems to be refusing to let me back in. I have sent requests but no answer.
