Facebook vs. Second Life

Which one will implode first ?

A few months ago, casino games have been forbidden in Second Life, an event said to mark the beginning of the end for this virtual world, which had become quite real since Linden Dollars may be exchanged with real money. No doubt that real laws will quickly invade this other real world, where money & sexual issues are real problems. During this time, other virtual worlds appear ie. "Outback Online", "There", even more realistic, it will be hard to control everything.

Facebook now claims more than 50 million users in the world, evaluated to several billion US dollars. Hard not to hear about it in the news these days. 30 minutes, that's the time I spent to explore this community before to deactivate my account by all ways. No more time on MySpace, what then ?


Lequel implosera le premier ?

Il y a quelques mois, les jeux de casino ont été interdits dans Second Life, un événement pouvant marquer le début de la fin de ce monde virtuel, qui était devenu très réel étant donné que l'on pouvait y échanger des dollars Linden avec de l'argent réel. Les "vraies" lois vont sans aucun doute envahir ce monde parallèle, où les sujets autour de l'argent et du sexe sont devenus de vrais problèmes. Pendant ce temps, d'autres mondes virtuels apparaissents, "Outback online", "There", toujours plus réalistes, il sera bientôt difficile de tout contrôler.

Facebook est le buzz du moment, on lui prête plus de 50 millions d'utilisateurs dans le monde, évalué à plusieurs millions de dollars US. Difficile de ne pas en entendre parler dans les nouvelles ces derniers jours. 30 minutes, c'est le temps que j'ai passé à explorer cette communauté avant de désactiver mon compte par tous les moyens. Pas plus de temps sur MySpace, au suivant ?
