The phenomenal growth of Second Life continues

comScore issued a press release with some info on yet another Second Life growth spurt. As of today, Second Life has 6,183,178 registered users with 1,624,434 active over the past 60 days. There's been an increase of 46 percent in the number of active residents from January 2007. There's also a large shift demographically, as the majority of users are now European.

An excerpt from the comScore release:
“The phenomenal growth of Second Life continues, and its presence is being felt around the world,” said Bob Ivins, Managing Director of comScore Europe. “With nearly 800,000 active residents in Europe, Second Life is proving to be popular on an international scale. It’s especially fascinating to note that the number of active German residents exceeds the number of active residents in the entire U.S. It is little wonder that bricks and mortar businesses are seeing Second Life as a virtual-world way of accessing a global, real-world customer base.”
