We’ve just published a new video that briefly highlights a few of Second Life’s recent improvements and new features.
If you’re a follower of this blog, the content will probably be familiar - it includes initiatives like Project Sunshine and SLShare - but we all occasionally meet someone whose notions of Second Life are a little (or more than a little) outdated, and we hope this video may help get them more up-to-speed on what Second Life is like today.
Check out the new video below, and share it with your friends!
Today, we’re introducing Second Life Share or SLShare for short. It’s a new feature that makes it easy to share things from Second Life with your friends on Facebook.
SLShare is a new, 100% opt-in Viewer feature that will allow you to easily update your Facebook status, share photos, and check-in from Second Life locations to your Facebook wall.
Whether you’re at a great inworld event and want to let your Facebook friends know where to join you, want to show off a photo of your avatar modeling your latest Marketplace purchase, or just share a thought inspired by your inworld explorations, SLShare makes it easy to share pieces of your Second Life experiences with your Facebook network.
Check out this video introduction for more info.
SLShare isn’t yet available for everyone, but starting today, a certain percentage of users will begin to be able to access the feature, and we’ll soon rolling it out to everyone.
UPDATE - Oct. 1, 2013: we're ready to expand the testing group for SLShare! If you'd like to give it a try, you can download the RC Viewer with SLShare feature here.
Watch the video below, and be sure to check out the Dwarfins inworld!
