Google Plus continues to be the social media destination of choice for OpenSim users, due its usability, sharing features, and support for identities based on avatar names.

I currently track 175 virtual communities that have some relation to OpenSim, and just collected the members counts of each group. See the full list of metaverse communities here.

Of course, you don’t have to be a member to view the posts in the public communities, so the amount of interest in, say, The Adult Metaverse community, may be under counted.

This month for the time time I started tracking collections as well, which are a new feature in Google Plus.

    Damm it, you use to do 20 at least, or more, now only 15, if it is to reduce do biggest 10 – almost there (383), arghhhhh

  • good ones, I recommend especially the “opensim free” one, it’s a good idea-)

    But I suppose we are in the “lull that follows the summer lull which only incidentally occurs when those summer lull people are supposed to be back unlulling” (yes, that is the full lull title in quotes)
