Kaneva, The Next Second Life?

27 Apr

Have you heard of Kaneva? According to the website, “it is a whole new way to express yourself and connect with friends online. A digital canvas for creativity and entertainment, Kaneva is the first to integrate social networking, shared media, games and collaborative communities into an immersive 3D virtual world.”

Does this sound familiar? It might because the concept is very close to Second Life. The biggest difference Kaneva has over Second Life is the “Facebook” qualities of social networking. The ability to share, rate and tag items between users which initially Second Life did not exclusively focus on.
