Abstract: The purpose of using the internet has been thoroughly studied in the context of “traditional” web. This exploratory study aims to illustrate the profile of users visiting Virtual Worlds (VWs) through the Web. The findings confirm VWs’ social origin and highlight entertainment as one of the most attractive purposes of entering to this virtual world. The study also contributes to our understanding of virtual reality retailing dynamics and sets the further research agenda.
