Why Second – Life wouldn’t work

Why Second – Life wouldn’t work

I have never been a big fan of Second Life, MySpace or for the matter any such online communities. From a recruiter’s point of view, they leave me cold.

Initially the huge numbers had me salivating but honestly the going-on seems a bit risqué (I use this word for want of a better one).

Suffice to say that I was not comfortable with the profiles and seemed a huge waste of time. Unfortunately, other than a vague gut feeling, I did not have anything solid to back up my claim.

Fortunately Resourcing Strategies has an excellent post, where they have done the math’s and come to the same conclusion.

What is your take on Second Life? Will it work for the recruiters?
