  • Suggestions for content:  Promotion from Virtual Worlds. Summary
  • Note that you can include web links in the description.
  • If you are selling on Kitely Market, link to your store there.
  • If you are promoting your school, link to your school's web site.
  • If you are promoting your book, link to your marketing page.
  • If you are a blogger, link to your blog's entry page
  • Click the Manage button to edit the description.

How people find it

  • Public pages are listed on the Kitely site: Explore Kitely
  • Find button (upper right) searches the description: Sandboxes
  • Promote your interests by including keywords in your description.
  • You may want to create a hashtag ID.
  • That is a # followed by a unique set of characters.
  • You put the hashtag ID in the description.
  • And wherever else you want your postings to be found.

Examples of keyword searches in Explore Kitely

Go there info

  • People who reach the page and are logged into Kitely can click "Enter World." 
  • To bring people from the Hypergrid, use the HG address in the right-hand column.

Repost buttons

  • Bottom right
  • You would want to get visitors to repost.
  • To promote elsewhere, they can use the web link
  • The good part:  Elsewhere includes people who know not OpenSim.
  • The posts may tell them about it,


  • This button is now changed to a Facebook share button.
  • Visitors can promote the place on FB.
  • That works best if they can repost in groups they are in.


  • Posts on Twitter, on your timeline.   
  • It is probably only seen by people following you--if they look near the time of posting.  
  • Twitter postings may work best for events, when posted near the time of the event.
  • You can embed your Twitter stream on a web page: See example
  • The embedded stream is always current.  

In Share

  • Posts on LinkedIn
  • To post effectively, you should give it relevant hashtags.  
  • Those probably work best if they relate to some profession.  
  • The relevant professionals may see a hashtag of interest and click through.
  • LinkedIn is used by professionals, such as educators.
  • A post here is probably wasted unless the description interests some professionals.

Google search finds it

  • To find it easily, differentiate with Kitely or other modifier:
  • Google search for kitely caribou
  • Or use your hashtag ID if you have one.
  • Example: Here is one I created:  #VWEDU
  • I use this on my blog articles about education in virtual worlds.
