Maybe a year ago I searched Flickr for Groups relating to different Virtual Worlds. If memory serves, it was something like:

Fortnite: 0 Groups
Minecraft: 3 Groups
World of Warcraft: 14 Groups
Second Life: 3,300 Groups

Frankly surprised Flickr hasn't worked with Linden Lab to create plans that tie Premium on Second Life and Flickr Pro access together.

I don't think that Roblox or Fortnite are considered examples of metaverses yet, the true example of a metaverse is still Second Life and it will be for a long time, because in these games everything is very limited and the only one really free and that meets all the basic requirements for a metaverse it's still just Second Life, at least with the technology available today and functional.

Remarkable how we’ve grown and thrived since my SL Birthday 15 years ago.
