AltSpace
VTime
Facebook spaces
Bigscreen
VSpatial
Feel free to add to the list. 

I know socializing in VR is supposed to be the next big thing, but it’s too early to know when or if it will take off.

    Never understood the appeal of them. My "social apps" are things like Guild Wars 2 and IL2:BoS multiplayer.

    I just use bigscreen for the great desktop integration... all the rest are a bit creepy...

    My social apps are pubg, eso, warframe etc etc all while on discord chatting with the people I am playing with.

    Currently VR has very little of this for me and I am finding VR to be quite 'anti' social. The only game I have atm for my style of gameplay is Elite Dangerous.

    Where are all the 'relaxing' multiplayer games for VR? I mean Echo Arena is fun for 30 mins but I want to sit down after work not jump about all night!

    It should be pretty much down to the Big Two currently: Facebook's Spaces and Microsoft's AltSpace.

    Kinda funny that they both have the word "space" in it. Something tells me that Facebook Spaces has the marketing edge here

    You could play it while sitting ;)
    It is fun. More controller oriented and strategic.

    This is quite alluring I must admit. I love that users can implement their own C# Script. I may have to try this soon!

    There's some really nice and interesting scenes to take a look at.

    Too bloody expensive these days and with smoking being banned in pubs a few people are put off going I reckon. That smoking ban started killing the pub industry when it started years ago.

    Yep. Smoking bans ruined it for a lot of my friends. Plus I am way too friendly with the "round of shots on  me" sessions that begin once I get a nice buzz going. I always end up at the bar thinking, "just 2 drinks then home." Then $100 later...

    In a way I'm quite glad I can't drink anymore, it's saved me a fortune...particularly with the amount I used to drink. My diabetes gives me a fast metabolism so I can drink A LOT more than the average bear, when I was working behind the bar years ago I used to drink around 20 pints per day every day and on my 29th birthday me and a mate (the only mate that could keep up with me) did 30 pints plus shorts and then went to a party afterwards with a 4 pack of Stella each lol. :o:D:o

    Maybe I should take advantage of my Sansar Creator subscription and create a pub where you can smoke.

    Pubs, smoking and “a round of shots on me.” I think you guys just answered why social V.R. apps are gaining popularity!
