My last Second Life statistics blog post was published back in early March 2016 where I mentioned that Linden Owned regions increased slightly with private estates declining yet again. All statistics used in this blog post are from the Second Life Grid Survey for reference.
Since March 2016 Private Estates have declining further and Linden Owned regions have dropped again. Since the start of 2016 Second Life has lost 299 regions so far and if things don’t change soon then I would imagine at the end of 2016 the total amount of Main Grid regions will most likely drop down to the 23, 000 mark. It’s hard to tell if Project Sansar will have an impact on the grid numbers. The public launch of Project Sansar will be the end of the 2016 / early 2017.
In the graph below there have been some weeks with net growth for private estates which is good to see. It would be nice to see more net growth in the months ahead for Private Estates.

As you can see there have been a steady decline in daily concurrency since 2009 with various months being more than the others. Back in 2010 there was a lot of interest for Second Life with more residents logged in at any given time.
