The Dodo was a flightless bird living on the island of Mauritius, but is long extinct. In this blog post we are reviewing why a particular Virtual Event Platform, Second Life, never took off (much like the Dodo)…
Second Life was a once-hailed platform where businesses would conduct meeting and meet their stakeholders. Large blue-ship companies spent large budgets on building campus, meeting places and holding meetings inside the 3D world.
The analysts firms were not late jump on the bandwagon. Gartner predicted that by 2011, 80% of all Internet users would have an active presence in a virtual world such as Second life.
Total number of registrants on Second Life is around 40 million users – and even though Gartner referred to Second Life, it is not hard to claim that Second Life for Businesses became a digital Dodo.
Today, the activities in Second Life focus on games and adventure and fantasy activities. Reports speak about a core user group of around 500k people visiting the environment on a monthly basis. Mentions of Second Life being use by business are non-existing since years.
Although visuals are important, take away gimmicky features. A clean visual interface with clear buttons where to click makes navigation easy.
