What's an Infohub?

An Infohub, also known as a Welcome Area, is a place where Residents congregate and socialize, and there are usually kiosks providing Second Life information. Infohubs can be fun places to hang out and learn about the world if you're new, although silly stuff happens on occasion.

Official Infohubs are owned by Linden Lab and mostly built by Residents, but some Residents run their own, unofficial social spaces which they also call Infohubs.

Infohubs are represented on the World Map with blue i's, like this:

To show them, make sure that Infohub on the right-hand legend is checked.

What are all the official Infohubs?



Former or inactive hubs

Can I find Infohubs through Search?

You can try!

  1. Choose World>Search and pick "Places" from the menu beside the "Search" button.
  2. Try serach terms like "infohub", "hub" or "welcome".
  3. On the left column, change All Categories to Linden Location.

This shows most of the Infohubs, although some are listed using other keywords.

Is there anything else special I need to know?

You can set your home location at any Infohub. If you don't have a home location set, World>Teleport Home will send you to a random infohub matching your maturity rating.
