Year and a half back, when I first wrote about Second Life, I was all excited. Things have pretty much changed from then. Second Life could not top netizens’ expectations since major hindrance has been low bandwidth, especially in developing markets like India. So adoption rate of virtual networks has been low.

But it seems the trend has started catching up again. GigaOm reports this wherein it mentioned that Second Life is seeing returning growth in terms of users.

Presently Second Life hosts about 731,00 users as of the March end, the result of an upward climb that began in August 2008. But I’m trying to understand the trend the internet has been following for the past couple of years. Starting you can view this trend analysis from Google Insights.

Point is where are we going now? Remembering the fact the mobile will play an important role in all these and possibly social networks and microblogging sites have already a heads on.

And now if we talk about stats then Facebook has garnered about 200 million users, Twitter with 14 million (conservative though) and peripheral sites even in the same space have not been doing that bad in terms of user base but yes, revenue generation has been the perennial problem with all these social systems.

So finally, the stage has been set and now it all depends of who is going to grab the mindshare or maximum eye balls which can lead them to green bills.

Any thoughts…..
