Second Life Research Study

Welcome to my website!  I am a researcher at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.  I am conducting a research study on social interactions.  The study takes place in the virtual world, Second Life.

If you are interested in participating, you will be asked to download the (free) Second Life program, create an avatar that resembles you, interact at a social event in Second Life, and complete an online survey.  It should take about 90 minutes total.

For your participation, you will earn $10.00 and a chance to win a $300 gift certificate to!!

To see if you qualify, you will need to answer a few questions about yourself. You can do this now, by clicking the following link:
