I really loved this post from the Twinity Monitor about getting a sense of neighborhoods in Twinity.
I think it’s time for people to kind of break out of that habit and treat moving into an area in the same way you would in real life. Offline you’d never just move into a street without wondering who lives in the apartment above and below you or in the building next door; you’d probably say hello just once. Even if you kind of keep to yourself and aren’t all that sociable, curiosity would cause you to at least try to find out who lives in your building and neighborhood.
Why not do the same in Twinity– try to learn more about your virtual neighbors and, if you’re not too shy, even introduce yourself? When you move into an apartment, click on your own building directory to see who lives there.
