      Category: Community

      Gaia Online is a mix of social networking and massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG). Users can create their own avatars, then earn money for them by playing games and interacting with the virtual world. Gaia also includes its own marketplace, driven by a micro economy among its members. The natural appeal of the site is due both to community and the built-in rewards system for participation.

      Gaia Online was founded in 2003, and has over 300,000 active users daily. In addition to the games, GaiaOnline also has active forums, where users can discuss anything that's on their mind, either in the real world, or the world of Gaia Online. The forums are in part for fun, but also are an integral element to the plot and progression of Gaia Online's plotline.
