Teen SL is a Second life grid for 13 to 17-year-olds. Teen Second Life, however, will closing its doors to 16 and 17 year olds by the end of this year making it only available to 13-15-year-olds. All the nonprofit and educational communities will continue uninterrupted.
The number 1 priority for Linden Lab is to provide a safe and secure environment for teens. They have been working with the nonprofit and educational organizations to allow 13-15-year-olds limited access to the main grid. These teens will only be able to visit locations affiliated with the organization that they are a part of. They will not be able to search the grid or purchase items from the Marketplace. This allows a safe way for them to further advance their learning experience in Second Life.
There are also safe communities outside of Second Life that teens and adults alike can join that are focused around interacting with people and getting SL help that may not be readily available in the game itself.
A safe and friendly community I’ve been visiting is here: Second Life forum. The forum takes precautions to ensure that no personal information is released, everyone remains friendly and professional, and that no harmful files are featured on the site.
Another highlight of this SL forum is all their content they have available to assist you in your Second Life. You can find Second Life guides, tutorials, tips, and secrets to make you virtual world a better place to live in.

Just how amazing is your Second Life? Are you living in your dream world or does it more closely resemble your real world. On a scale from one to ten, with one being the lowest, how would you rate it?
- Do you live an extravagant lifestyle?
- Are you a successful entrepreneur?
- Do you keep up with all the latest fashion?
- Can you afford to buy almost anything you want?
- Have you made a name for yourself?
If you scored low on any one of these questions, with a little hard work there is a way to better your virtual world. There are tons of SL hints available that help you do anything from perfecting your appearance to making profits. You can also learn how to create anything from shoes to spaceships and how to start a business. Basically whatever you’re lacking, Second Life hints can teach you how to improve.
How would you rate your social life? An important part of the game is socializing and interconnecting with other residents.
- Are you constantly surrounded by good friends?
- Are your days filled with social gatherings and parties?
- Are you always meeting new people?
If you scored low on any of these questions you are missing out on the full Second Life experience. If you don’t know how or where to meet new people then I would suggest you start at a SL forum. Most people want a sense of belonging and to be part of a friendly community. You’ll find that and more at Second Life forum where you can get to know members, discuss the game, and learn about events. Who knows? You may just find a lifelong virtual friend.

Linden Lab, the owners of Second Life, make a large chunk of their money by selling plots of land and islands. A private island will generally cost about $1,000 USD which is a pretty large amount for most residents. However, if you buying so you can lease out plots of land to future homeowners or small business owners, than it could turn out to be a great investment.
Although are Second Life hacks and other forms of cheating available to gain that instant success results with not a lot of work and time, a lot of success stories will have that Donald Trump-like sound to it. Starting small and building from it.
One resident named Ray started his Second Life by buying small plots of land. After he saved enough money he bought his first island. He then began leasing out the space. He bought more islands with the profits.
Through perseverance and investing smartly he currently owns more than 100 islands and makes enough Second Life money to pay real life expanses.
If you want to become an entrepreneur like other residents, one of the most important things you can do is seek the advice of successful businessmen and businesswomen. This advice can be found in the form of Second Life guides where you can learn from their mistakes and dramatically increase your chance of success.
