Real Virtual Worlds: When Facebook, Youtube and eBay merge.
A real virtual world is described as a three-dimensional world in which human characters spend their time, play, work and live. A definition is proposed – 3D3C: 3D for the three dimensions of this interactive world and 3C for Community in which people connect with one another, Creation that allows people to express themselves and Commerce that links real monetary value to actions in this world. Current business models as seen today in Second Life, the first sample real Virtual World, are described.
