2014 PROMO: MySL is my 4th choice of social media to promote virtual world (SL) projects.

MySL is my 4th choice of social media 
to promote virtual world (SL) projects.
-
How to use MySL to promote virtual world (Second Life)  projects.
-
  • MySL  offers valuable communication services to people in SL.
  • Good for promoting events just before and while they happen.
  • You take a picture and post it to your friends, with a location link.
  • Use MySL for promoting your event, with pictures
  • Good for promoting your blog posts 
But...
  • Limited to Second Life distribution.
  • Was poorly maintained for a while.
  • Pages failed to load (probably slow servers).  
  • Images sometimes failed to post.
  • Location links were missing (probably coding error).
  • Location links working now. 
  • But loading and posting of pictures are still unreliable.
  • Continued maintenance and reliable operation are uncertain.
  • SL allows post-to-facebook.  
  • Facebook offers wider distribution, better targeting via groups. 
  • Best use both outlets, Facebook first, then MySL, if it works,
