In RL, and beside my job, I have a couple of very close friends, but I don’t need many social contacts. Maybe it is no easy for me to get in touch with new people. But okay - I am fine with that and I’m feel good, if I know, people are around me.
I am not a big friend of multiplayer online games, that is to fast for me - and also in SL I seldom visited the welcome hubs or met people on discos or so. But it was a good feeling to see ppl on the minimap online somewhere around me.
Sure, I also meet people, so I am not afraid to talk with them
So, when I am online here in HF, I always be visible for everyone and open the list with the others are online.
But this evening, it was a bit annoying. Three guys, without a nick, jumped beside me (at different times), talked very loud in the mic, made strange noises, one tried to turn me on and made strange compliments, and it seemd, no one had a feeling for privacy. Okay, I am not prudish - but I felt very uncomfortable. Esp, when I was online with the HMD.
Now, I don’t know - going invisible, means also, I will be pretty isolated on my domain…
I don’t know why some people not have a sense for privacy - or do they act in RL the same way?
Don’t understand me wrong, I know, all is new, everyone just want have fun. And it can be, it is just ‘my thing’.
