Adding someone to your contacts list

I want to add a friend to my contact list.

There are several ways to do this:

  • If you are nearby inworld, right click on their avatar and Add friend choose.
  • If you're not close enough, or if he's offline, click the button To chat at the bottom of the Second Life window, and then click the tab Friends. Then click the button Addto open a search window where you can type the friend's name.
  • You can also find friends in search:
    1. Click the button Search.
    2. Click the tab People.
    3. Type in the resident's name.
    4. Select it from the search results.
    5. Finally click on the button Add friend.

When you add a friend, the window goes Add friend that allows you to enter a custom message. Use this to explain why you should become friends or a reminder of how you met.

Once the friendship offer is accepted, the resident's name will appear on your contact list and your name will appear on their list. All friendships are mutual. This means that if you remove a friend from the list, they will no longer see you in their list.
To simply give your calling card to another resident without adding them to your contact list, right click on the avatar and choose More> Give a card. Calling cards appear in your inventory in the folder Calling cards. If you double-click it, you can open the resident's profile, but the benefits are limited compared to a full-fledged friendship.

Video tutorial

This visual aid (s) covers much of what has been described above. However, it was created before there was an option to send a custom message with the friendship offer.

Friendship etiquette

By completing your profile and reading the profiles of other residents, you will have ample opportunity to chat with one another. When you get along well, offer friendship.

If you are using the Second Life Viewer version 1.20 or higher, you can use any name in the window To chat and there in the tab Local chat or click an IM tab to open its profile.

Making contacts is very subjective. This article shows you how to use the properties of the viewer, but that doesn't make them popular. If you are interested in unofficial, resident-generated tips about it, take a look at the SLetiquette (en) page.
