Second Life hits 3 Million accounts

SL, at the time of writing, is standing at 2,980,370 accounts - less than 20 thousand off the next big milestone. Given the rate at which Germans have been coming into Second Life over the weekend, following recent coverage on German TV, we are likely to see our 3 Millionth resident some time later today.

I wouldn't put the champagne on ice just yet. SL is a long, long way from retaining all of these accounts. But at least it shows the power of TV. The same happened a couple of months back with Brazil - an article on TV led to what seemed like a wholesale immigration.

UPDATE: This is about 4 hours later - and the total now stands at: 3,020,735
