its sort of a social network/game, however i hesitate to use the term game because its not like there are any points or any way to win lose. but its a 3D world where you create an avatar and can pretty much do anything. theres a monetary system called linden dollars which you can exchange for real money so its you can actually profit from the game. you can buy land, build stuff, sell things you create, goto clubs, basically anything you can think of... its seriously like a whole new world. its free to play too! everyone should check it out!

It's gettin pretty big, large companies are investing into it too, the BBC(google it if you dont know who/what the BBC is) even had an online concert in SL. Some guy invested and re-built a part of Amsterdam, then sold it for $50,000 real cash.

I tried it for 5mins, got bored and uninstalled it, but each to his own.

did you even get past the tutorial island? once you get to the mainland and you see how expansive the world really is, its alot more interesting
