I find that kind of stereotype funny, because I remember when there was a stigma to even be using the internet as much as some of the same people who say "SL is for losers with no life!".

Barefoot Ballinger

You have to love the stereotypes! While I will admit that SL (at times) keeps me at my computer more often than I would like, I am no way a homebound loser without a real first life. Honestly, I have no friends on the grid that do not have a healthy and active first life...

Marianne McCann

It's funny, because anyone I have met who is on SL does not fit the supposed stereotype. I knwo I don't.



Thanks for the linkage, Hamlet. This is all preparation for the epic b-boy battle between me and my avatar.

...I always wonder why exactly someone antisocial would use social software, anyway. Not a very logical stereotype, if you ask me.

Francesca Poppy

RL friends of mine who don't use the internet as more than a way to check movie listings would probably fall into the category of those who think it must attract a multitude of socially-maladjusted geeks...and yet, they know at least two people in SL (myself and my SL/RL partner) who have so much going on in their lives that they find it hard to find time to log in to SL. And like Barefoot and Mari, I don't know anyone on the grid who doesn't also have an active RL...in fact, sometimes I'm dazzled at how much they manage to fit in!
