Top 10 SL communities pages to join on Google+


Recently Google introduced Communities to Google+ where anyone can talk about topics they are into and have conversations about it. It’s been very successful so far I think for SL residents setting up different SL communities pages. I’ve not heard of any issues/problems so far with Google+ Communities and it’s worth joining the pages to stay up with the latest activities from Second Life.
