Abstract (Original Language): 
Second Life (SL), diğer üç boyutlu sanal dünyaların özelliklerini taşıyan ve iletişim araştırmalarına konu olan popüler bir sanal dünyadır. Bununla birlikte SL, kendisine özgü ekonomisi, kültürel yapısı, değer sistemi, iletişim modları ve kullanıcılar tarafından oluşturulan avatarları ile sanal bir sosyal sistemdir. Bu dünya, kullanıcılarına yeni insanlarla tanışmak, alışveriş yapmak, flört etmek, sosyal aktivitelerde bulunmak gibi imkanlar sunmaktadır. Araştırmacılar, SL'ın çevrimiçi iletişimin geleceğini yansıttığına inanmaktadırlar. Bu çalışmada Second Life sanal yaşam dünyası kullanıcılarının genel profilini çıkararak, onların sanal dünyada sergiledikleri bireylerarası ilişkileri belirlemek ve bu ilişkilerin yüz yüze ortamlarla karşılaştırılmasını yapmak amaçlanmıştır. Araştırmada sanal etnografya yöntemi işe koşulmuş ve veriler, sanal gözlem, çevrimiçi görüşme ve yüzyüze görüşme olmak üzere oniki kişi ile görüşme yapılarak toplanmıştır. Toplanan veriler tümevarım analizi kullanılarak yorumlanmıştır.
