Second Life user concurrency 2011 so far

So far in 2011 the Second Life user concurrency has been trending downwards and dropping mostly during the year so far. There has no major high peaks during 2011 which has been disappointing. Many would say it’s been declining/flat this year and to be fair it has been. Don’t forget to visit my SL Metrics page for more interesting statistics. 😀

The Second Life daily median concurrency started well at the start of 2011 at around 56, 000 and now it appears to be hovering above 50, 000. The daily user concurrency average for August 2011 seems to be around 31, 000 to 65, 000 at peak. I wonder if things will pick up during the rest of 2011 or continue to decline further?.

User hours is another interesting area to focus on and again it shows a large drop in user hours in Second Life between Q1 2010 and Q2 2011. Check out this graph to see the user hours (millions).

  • Q1 2010 – 116
  • Q2 2010 – 109
  • Q3 2010 – 105
  • Q4 2010 – 105
  • Q1 2011 – 104
  • Q2 2011 – 103

Check out these updated graphs from the Grid Survey showing high, balanced and slipping stats.

In January 2009 there was a huge peak in Second Life user concurrency that reached the 80k milestone and then almost reached the 90k milestone in late March 2009. The 100k milestone I think won’t happen for a long time yet however that would be nice to see it reach that figure in the next few years.

  1. the peak was attributed at the time to bots. later concurrency had bots filtered out. after seeing this chart, maybe someone can explain to me how @rodvik can claim 60% growth. growth in what? let’s see the stats Rod.
