Second Life is the only truly social world I can think of. There is IMVU that is mostly used by younger people and is basically a chatroom with avatars, and then there are MMORPGs, like Black Desert or Final Fantasy XIV, where there are social features for roleplaying even love, like marriage and housing, but people are more focused on playing the game, even though relationships form.

I Play Second Life sometimes, I think it's funny to observe people talking, but I'm usually too shy to start talking to people. I have friends there, but most don't log in anymore.

I played Second Life a great deal of the day when I had been forced to move into a very dull city with nothing to do and was not a place where I could find friends -- mainly as a way to deal with being social isolated.
 
The main problem I had with SL is that the social relationship there were for the most part *fantasy* relationships.  Most people used 2ndLife to be someone they were NOT -- as opposite to a place where you could meet people and do things that you could not in Real Life.
 
So the vast majority of the relationships you had there were NEVER real ones.  And also the vast majority of its users did NOT want to carry what was the occasional real relationship over into the Real World.
 
For almost all people there it was just *role-playing* -- and even within that, there were HUGE areas of 2nd Life that were devote to role-playing within role-playing.
 
SL is nice to be able to do a lot of things one could never do, like be a superhero or an actual furry or a werewolf.  But as a place to actual socialize with other people on a REAL level, it is very barren.
 
When I realized after a long time of try to find real friends and more in SL that there were next-to-none to be found there, I left Second Life for good.

Some people just disappear for SL and you never know what happened to them; it can be very upsetting.  So I wrote a note to every "friend" I had there and explained to them why I was leaving, so I just did not vanish.  I also included in all those notes my email address and phone numer in case one of them might want to contact me in the Real World.

Over two years later now, not one of my SL "friends" ever did contact me.

SL can be fun -- if you realize that 99.8% of the people you encounter or have relationships with are *fake* people -- and there is *nothing* REAL about it.

Second Life. And yes, there's a lot of "fake" people with their "fake" feelings, but i have real friends form Second Life. And I met one in person. An European guy who cames to Brazil and we had a lot of fun, and we talk to each other everyday... Fake people is everywhere. Real people too...
