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.

Note that there are special rules that apply to these locations.

Official Infohubs are owned by Linden Lab and many were 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.

KBtip2.png Tip: Sometimes you may see Infohub dots in other places, usually off the Mainland. These are really telehubs, special landing points for regions or estates. You cannot normally set your home location at these points. (In ancient times, there were telehubs on the mainland too.)

What are all the official Infohubs?

While you can no longer set these locations as your home, some older accounts may still have home set there, and they are sometimes are used as hangouts.

Linden Homes hubs

These were never activated as home points (Governor Linden keeps them in the Linden Homes estate, separate from the mainland). They contain information kiosks, sample textures to match the Linden Homes housing, and sometimes model homes.

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 search terms like "infohub", "hub", "welcome" or "governor".
  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 mainland Infohub. If you don't have a home location set, World>Teleport Home will send you to a random infohub matching your maturity rating.
