Second Life and Trouble in Social Media

Today we are going to explore the world of second life for ourselves in Social Media with Professor Strate.  A guide is coming in to instruct us and tell us the ways of second life.  Second life gives users the opportunity to build virtual avatars themselves.  The social networking site also allows people to make upgrades with using money to purchase them just as in real life.  The site can help bring you places you've never been and will never be able to go and do things that you would never be able to do yourself.  For example, I could make a speech in another country right now with my second life avatar.  
On a completely unrelated topic a friend of mine sent me an article about a kid we knew who got a DUI.  The article not only details the faulty of his incident, but it also describes how his social media got dragged into it.  Here take a look for yourself.
