The IMVU Banner Ad That is Kicking Second Life's Ass

Okay. Maybe not this one specifically, but this type of advertising.

As much as it's fun to make fun of this kind of stuff, for better or worse, businesses are going to do what delivers the most customer and revenue.

I'm thinking Second Life is going to get increasingly squeezed by the 3D Chat and Social Game MMOs on one side, and the low-cost OpenSim providers on the other.

Yeah, SL should use a clip of yours Ann, they might actually get a few clicks.

I can make an animated gif like the IMVU ads if LL wanted. But they won't. They are prudes and too scared to do anything risque.

(But if they need to know how to do it then I'll be happy to explain)

B girl I think your statement about SL being squeezed between the 3D chat crowd, and the Open Sim arts and education crowd, is absolutely bang on the money. It seems as if the two ideologies share nothing in common except the technology used to get there.

It also seems to me that Linden Labs is a business first and foremost, and that it has already decided which way it wants to go, and it's made that decision clear since putting an end to grants and subsidies for the arts, education, and teen grid(education), while pushing things like Facebook integration, web profiles, jiggling boobies,and the basic point and click viewer.

-Side note: Just visited your FB page and I have to tell you that your profile picture is smokin sensual! You look like you've just shared a bottle of wine with someone new and special while watching a romantic sexy movie, and are ready to take the second bottle up stairs. It's in your eyes.

Taamon, you know Botgirl is a fictional character, right? LIke Jessica Rabbit. ;)

WTF? How dare you misrepresent yourself like that!!!... OK OK only kidding. No worries Botgirl, I'm fasinated with avatar identity, and it's connection with our different meat identities, so I read you, of course. Your fourworlds "coming out" was a while ago now, and I liked your keynote at the virtual education conference.

I started SL as girl, and see myself in a few more years possibly as a skunk, but none of that takes away the fact that you are smokin hot :)
