ReactionGrid Inc. Virtual World Poll #2.

Our last roadmap poll, yes you are a huge factor in deciding what we do and when, we asked "Why do you use 3D virtual worlds?".

The 4 options were:

  1. Socializing with friends
  2. Creating 3D items and environments
  3. Meeting and Brainstorming with colleagues
  4. Other

    Here are the results (96 responses):

Here are some of the comments...
Socializing with friends:
