YooWalk: Another Virtual World

Filed under: Google Lively,YooWalk — admin @ 10:32 am

Mashable have posted about another virtual world this morning, YooWalk, a browser-based virtual world for browsing the web.

It is more appropriate to compare YooWalk with Google’s Lively than Second Life. Both have limited freedom in terms of what can be created, although the embeddding and linking to content makes YooWalk much more than another Lively chatroom.

Important key differences between YooWalk and Lively are:
-YooWalk users can embed their own pictures and videos.
-YooWalk does not require a plugin (it works on my Linux Eee 701 as well as my Windows desktop).

At the moment the site is still very much in Beta mode. Designing your room is a bit clunky, and when my activation email went MIA there seemed to be no recourse other than using a different email account. Nonetheless, a welcome addition to the burgeoning web based virtual worlds.
