The virtual unity of real social relationship is not original. Recently, some online games based on social relationship are more and more popular. Thanks to the real social relationship, those special games are interesting and amazing. We took the online games of ldquokaixin-netrdquo ( as an example to study. Those special games are able to turn the real relations of friends to a kind of virtual relations. Users are also able to earn some virtual money with the conversion. Through the datasets collected from the Web, we found that there is some kind of correlation between the users' social relationship and their virtual income. That is discussed in this paper.
