Strawberry Singh did a blog about how Dr Phil himself made an avatar and logged onto Second Life to discuss the pros and cons about hanging out within a virtual universe. It was mostly a positive feedback but one has to be careful when it comes to playing online like any game not just Second Life itself.
We are all online for different reasons and some of us are online for much longer time periods than others. For me it is all about finding the healthy balance. I admit I have spent a lot on Second Life since moving to this program from IMVU but I told myself when my two besties pulled me into SL that I wouldn’t invest so much as I did 7 years on IMVU.
I have done the 7am-6am online all day/night and it wasn’t benefitting my health or my personality, I had no job when I did those hours and though living through a computer screen it is not truly living. My ex and my mum have both expressed concerns of me being up late and being on Second Life but rest assured I know my limits when it comes to gaming, thank you very much!
