Opensim Virtual. A New Google+ Community

Today I did the unthinkable and set up an Google+ community!

Opensim Virtual
"First there was Second Life then there was Freedom"

Well, I did notice G+ had launched this thing and I was curious as to how it worked. I am already a big Twitter fan but, as cool and useful as Twitter is, those tweets are pretty short. It would be good, I often thought, if they could be expanded into a longer posts. Well, with G+ that is exactly how it works and I can add images too. Okay, so it sits there with a load of other stuff too and stupid G+ bosses have a name fetish issue which must be born out of some primitive instinct thing about recognizing one dinosaur from another. Yeah, yeah, they need to figure out what is the best crappy spam to sling at you where ever ye wander.

However. Yes, well, what use is it and why bother?

Well now, I did think it could be useful to promote my role play game or this blog but then I heard that someone setup a G+ community for Second Life and I was prompted to do similar for Opensim. I had already joined a new working thingy called Grid Cache which, again, is a lot like Twitter and includes file sharing and images but the tweets, if I can call them that, on the Wire don't expand like G+. I also looked at Vanish Firecaster's new messaging system for Opensim Creations, OS Chateau and it is cool, and much like Grid Cache. However, sorry but none have the look and feel of G+. Also, G+ is likely to be a better promotional tool since it can be found by a much wider audience.

Anyway, this is an experiment basically and anyone who enjoys the Opensim Metaverse is welcome to join it and simply post comments and pictures of your sims and creations. Its a party promotion so feel free to make use of it. It costs me nothing and we who enjoy playing around and grid hopping to meet up can do with it what we will.

I added some categories already so if you have new fashion items to show us, post images to Virtual Products or Virtual Fashion. If you have a role play sim to promote then tell us all about it on the Virtual Role Play section. I will add more sections if peeps want them.

So guys, see you on G+ @ Opensim Virtual
