Second Life Stats


Do you ever get the feeling that you don’t know anyone who actually plays Second Life? (I play, only it’s called ‘parenting.’ ;) ) I think I know why now: 84% of Second Lifers live their first lives outside of the United States.

However, that may soon change. North America is the IRL home to the fastest-growing segment of the Second Life population.

comScore reports on the popularity of Second Life today. I went ahead and added the penetration stat myself.
