Ever wondered who actually plays Second Life? So did we! SL Profiles gives you the opportunity to find out more about your fellow SL players. We hope that our site will bring Second Life players closer together. In a society where life is centered around work, many people simply don't have the time to find their perfect soul mate any more. Whether you're simply looking for a friend or for something more, SL Profiles is the place to be! You can add all your 1st and 2nd Life information and pictures to our site, send and receive message from people all around the world, add friends, favorites, blog, rank pictures and second life places, create voting ballots and so much more.
What is the difference between us and others out there? We are NOT using an out-of-the-box standard profile site. Unlike others, this site was build from scratch to make sure it is dedicated to Second Life and Second Life only. Also, if you have any suggestions, please make sure to let us know. Most of the features added to this site were requested by our members. The more people sign up with this free service, the more things we add to our site. We've got plenty of ideas to make this site great so sign up and invite your friends to do so as well!

SLurl provides direct teleport links to locations in Second Life. If you have Second Life installed, clicking on the map link will automatically teleport you to that location in-world.
Why use SLurl? ... In addition to allowing customized control over mapping locations in Second Life, SLurl also provides a better experience for web users who don't have Second Life. Instead of getting an error when clicking on web links that begin with "secondlife://", visiting a SLurl link gives potential new users a chance to sign up.

What is Second Life?
http://secondlife.com/whatis/
What is Second Life?
Second Life is a 3-D virtual world entirely built and owned by its residents.
Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by over 6,000,000 people from around the globe.
From the moment you enter the World you'll discover a vast digital continent, teeming with people, entertainment, experiences and opportunity. Once you've explored a bit, perhaps you'll find a perfect parcel of land to build your house or business.
You'll also be surrounded by the Creations of your fellow residents. Because residents retain the rights to their digital creations, they can buy, sell and trade with other residents.
