Saying Farewell to Avatars United
Dear Avatars United Member,
In January of this year, Linden Lab purchased Avatars United
for its underlying social technology and to integrate powerful social
networking capabilities into the Second Life experience.
Today, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue Avatars United
and will be taking down the site on September 29, 2010. Over the next
week, we encourage you to save any pieces of content (such as pictures,
friend’s names, etc.) that you want to keep. We will also soon update
you on your AU Coin refund, if you have an account balance.
Over the two and a half years since launching Avatars
United, we have welcomed avatars from many virtual worlds and MMOs to
connect on our platform as the only social network catering to the needs
of virtual identities. We are proud to have served those needs and
honored to have shared this journey with you all.
Going forward, pieces of the Avatars United technology will be
integrated into the Second Life platform to support a richer, and more
dynamic, community experience. Read more about these efforts on the Second Life blog.
Thank you for being a member of the Avatars United community, and part of the Second Life family.
The Avatars United/Second Life Team
