It was only a matter of time before Second Life was sucked into the parallel world of Facebook applications. Second Life Link is a new app that lets you show off your SL avatar on your Facebook profile, and show which of your Facebook friends are online in Second Life.
There’s also an option to specify your home or favourite SL location, allowing friends to teleport straight there from within Facebook. Makers Fire Centaur say privacy hasn’t been forgotten, so users can choose from several settings to decide whether or not their friends can see their online/offline status.
It’s a neat application, which since its still in beta has scope for new features to be added later. How long till some developer wizard creates a full Second Life browser that works as a Facebook application though, hmm? Yeah, I know, probably a loooong long time.
