Meez Finally Launches Virtual World
If you decide to make an avatar (free) and room the 'hoods, make sure you play with the Tesla pillar on the Babbage Boardwalk in Arcadia. There's a gaming aspect, too, because you have to learn what typed commands will create actions in your avatar.
Meez has hooked up with major corporations who provide goodies for the virtual playground. You can also check out hot new albums.
I don't inflict attachments like my Meez avatar (or much of anything else) on my email recipients. But I do hang out at one website where many users are addicted to their Meez avatars and changing their look and adventures.
Meez isn't a Second Life, nor does it intend to be. It's actually a very clever advertising platform for the brands participating there--and a quirky, fun little pit stop on the information superhighway.
As long as I don't run into Al Gore, who no doubt would claim he invented avatars, too.
users have been requesting a virtual world in which their custom avatars can roam around and become more social with each other for some time, and now they finally have what they’ve always wanted. Meez Nation is the brand new virtual world made just for Meez avatars.
The virtual world wasn’t entirely under wraps, as Meez has been testing out a few virtual rooms through its Facebook application The-New-Faces-at-Facebook earlier this year. This testing laid the groundwork for many of the social aspects that were applied to Meez Nation. The virtual world hosts games, customizable rooms, various applications like a graffiti wall, and the ability to do things like watch YouTube videos with friends.
