General Information

Company Linden Lab


Second Life

Second Life is an Internet-based 3D virtual world where inhabitants - known as “Residents” - can create, buy, sell and experience virtual content. While the foundation of the world was created and is still hosted by Linden Lab, almost all of the content is user generated, accounting for more than 250 terabytes of data. With almost 15 million registered users from over 100 countries and a fully functioning economy with more than $300 million Linden Dollars transacted annually, Second Life offers a diverse virtual world experience.

Though mostly contained in its virtual domain, Second Life reaches into the outside world. There are large organizations present in Second Life, and many third-party services are also available that allow residents to convert Linden Dollars back into real-world currency. In many cases, digital properties within Second Life are sold for substantial amounts of real money.
