Avatars United is a social network for virtual world avatars launched in early 2008.
The site was built in recognition of the fact that strong bonds and close friendships exist within virtual spaces. Users can register multiple avatars and connect with their virtual friends or gather in groups to discuss and plan in-game events. Avatars United also offers a virtual currency, which can be used to customize avatar and group profiles, and purchase virtual items. Currently, 80 of the most popular online games and virtual worlds are supported, including World of Warcraft, EVE Online and Second Life.
Avatars United includes support for OpenSocial, which allows users to select and install social applications that suit his or her particular character development targets in his or her particular virtual world setting. Applications are available for both avatars and groups.
