Contacting Other Group Members

To a large extent Second Life is a social networking application. As you explore the environment you will make friends and join groups.

There will be times in which you would like to contact your friends or other group members to talk to them, send them a message, or even teleport them to your current location

The following instructions will tell you how to do this.

When you are logged into Second Life, you can see a "Communicate" button at the bottom of your screen.
