No doubt you’ve heard about 2nd Life. It is a software program created in 2003 enabling consumers to create avatars and explore a virtual globe. Customers through their unique avatars can interact socially with others, take part in specific or team activities, buy and trade residential property, travel around the world. Customers buy clothing, items, and motions. You’ll find 18 million new users on 2nd existence.
An innovative new organization also known as Weopia has taken this concept and used it to internet dating. Their site claims to make it easier to “get a far better feeling of the person”, “work quicker than online dating by yourself” and “in order to make actual life times twice as successful”.
The style works such as this: you satisfy someone on an online relationship service. In email or on the cellphone you declare that you go on an online date. Certainly one of you joins Weopia and will pay $5. This person delivers an anonymous email invite to the other person. Both of you build an avatar for any time. You’ll be able to participate in one of the activities â fly a hovercraft, go boating, hang sliding. You can also remain and “talk” via IM.
The service pledges unmatched confidentiality and safety controls.
Therefore, so is this creepy? A rather of good use tool? An odd fad? The brave new world?
Would you use these types of a service?
