Second Life statistics 2014 summer update


This is the summer 2014 Second Life statistics blog post looking back at the past 3 months to see what’s been happening in terms of grid numbers. My last statistics blog post was made on 1st April 2014 for the spring update. These are the very latest stats for Second Life and I hope you will find that stats useful for future reference. :)

Key:

  • Red means a decline
  • Green means a increase

Total Regions

  • The total number of Main Grid regions is now 26, 120  - (down from 26, 165)
  • The total number of Private Estates is now 19, 080 –  (down from 19, 181)
  • The total number of Linden Owned is now 7, 040  - (up from 6, 979)

Since 1st April 2014 the region count has been declining still on a weekly basis but there has been some good news because there has been small increases in private estates during the past 3 months. Year to date private estate losses are now 200 which represents a decline of 1%.

In April 2014 the decline was 0.5% and I predicted that the total number of main grid regions would go under 26, 000 regions mark. I also predicted that Private Estates would most likely go under 19, 000 regions mark.  Both of these predictions didn’t happen. Sadly these predictions (above) will happen at some point before the end of the summer if rates continue.

Private Estates Growth 

Since 1st April 2014 there has been small peaks in positive net growth of private estates. See below!

  • Net growth of 15 private estates – 6th April 2014
  • Net growth of 4 private estates – 16th June 2014
  • Net growth of 7 private estates – 30th June 2014

SL Daily Concurrency Levels

Since 1st April 2014 the daily concurrency levels in Second Life are reaching a maximum peak of 56, 000 (down from 62, 000) and a low peak of 30, 000 (up from 29, 000). The median and mean daily concurrency has dropped down to 42, 000 (down from 45, 000 mark).

The average daily concurrency was 44,182 on 1st July 2013 and now it’s 41,791 as of 1st July 2014.

New Signups

Today there are 38,680,411 total signups for Second Life (up from 37,524,063) since the beginning.

The rate of signups on a daily basis is currently between 9, 000 to 13, 000.

InWorldz hits 100, 000 registered users milestone


InWorldz 100, 000 total users registered

InWorldz 100, 000 total users registered

Today InWorldz officially hit the 100, 000 registered users milestone at 6:37am SLT which is a huge milestone for the community and sets a new historical record. Congratulations InWorldz! 

When I joined InWorldz on 2nd September 2010 there were 12, 274 registered users, 96 users online and 499 total regions. See the historical milestones below…

Updated: InWorldz Registered Users Historical Stats

It’s taken almost 4 years to reach the 100, 000 registered users milestone and in another four years I would image InWorldz would of reached the 200, 000 registered users mark if rates continue as they are.

 

 

 

 

Second Life statistics 2014 spring update


This is the spring 2014 Second Life statistics update blog post. I publish the spring, summer, autumn and winter updates during each year looking at the Second Life economy. My last Second Life statistics blog post was published on 2nd December 2013 for the winter update.

Total Regions

  • The total number of Main Grid regions is now 26, 165 - (down from 26, 403)
  • The total number of Private Estates is now 19, 181 –  (down from 19, 424)
  • The total number of Linden Owned is now 6, 984 - (up from 6, 979)

Since 2nd December 2013 the region count is still declining week on week and Tyche Shepherd published today that Private Estate Net loss for the year to date is 92 regions (0.5%). If rates continue then the total number of main grid regions will go under 26, 000 within the next few months. Private Estates will go under 19, 000 within the same time frame. 

Main Grid total regions

Private Estates Growth 

On 24th February 2014 private estates actually grew by 15 regions (net growth) which was welcomed I think. This marked the first growth for private estates of 2014 and marked the first time the grid grew week on week since 31st March 2013.

  • +30 regions on 24th June 2012
  • +13 regions on 31st March 2013
  • +15 regions on 23rd February 2014

These are positive signs indeed that there is interest again and growth for private estates in Second Life. It would be nice to see private estates growing on a monthly basis instead of slowly declining. The good news is that there is a slow down in net losses which is good and lets hope it continues to slow down. It would be nice to see growth in the total amount of regions in Second Life again.

Private Estates

SL Daily Concurrency Levels

Since December 2013 the daily concurrency levels seem to be reaching a maximum peak of 62, 000 on average and 29, 000 for the low peak. The median and mean daily concurrency seems to be steady around the 45, 000 mark.

Historical Daily Concurrency

New Signups 

As of today there are 37,524,063 total signups since Second Life first launched according to the Second Life Grid Survey. See the updated graph below showing resident signups to date and it appears there was more growth in signups from late 2011 onwards.  Hmm, interesting!

Total Signups

According to Dwell On It statistical graphs it appears that the rate of signups on a daily basis is now between 7, 000 to 14, 000. Within the next few years the total amount of signups will reach 40, 000, 000. I hope the daily signups rate will increase in the coming years to something like 15, 000 to 20, 000. I think that with more investment in new developments for Second Life that will happen at some point.

OpenSim 

On 15th March 2014 Hypergrid Business reported that OpenSim regions drop on OSgrid’s spring cleanup. The top 40 OpenSim grids lost nearly 5, 000 regions during the last two months. 196 opensim grids reported stats last month and note that there are far more opensim grids out there but they didn’t share stats.

  • 28,684 regions
  • 359,351 registered users 
  • 21,461 active users

Private Estates in Second Life grew by 15 regions


Good news that private estates in Second Life grew by 15 regions (net growth) during the past week. This marks the first growth of 2014 for private estates and this is the first time the grid has grown week on week since 31st March 2013 according to Tyche Shepherd.

Private Estates growth history 

  • +30 regions on 24th June 2012
  • +13 regions on 31st March 2013
  • +15 regions on 23rd February 2014

Here is the latest grid stats as of 23rd February 2014.

The grid actually grew this week by 14 regions , Private Estates had net growth of 15 while Linden Owned dropped by 1

Total number of Main Grid regions is now 26145 ( 19163 private estates & 6982 Linden owned)
60 new regions were added and 17 returned to the grid, with 63 regions removed (20 were renamed and 0 came and went since last report)

A modest growth this week , the first time the Grid has grown week on week since 31st March 2013 . The growth was distributed across a range of estates – no particular estate exhibiting a significant change in size due to new regions.

Adult rated regions were also up this week by 29 to 4526 (17.3% of the grid) while General rate also grew by 9 to 3540 (13.5%)

This is a very positive sign and shows that there is interest again for private regions in Second Life. I hope that there will be more growth in the months ahead. The latest stats can be found on the Second Life Grid Survey.

 

Prediction size of OpenSim and Second Life in 2014


Lani Global posted a very interesting prediction graph on Twitter on 3rd January for OpenSim vs Second Life for 2014. The graph prediction shows that OpenSim will continue to grow faster than the Second Life grid between now and December 2014. If trends continue as they are then this prediction will be correct for 2014. I hope that there will be a increase of regions/private estates for Second Life during 2014 and for new opensim grids get noticed more.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
