The rapid pace of computer technology evolution makes Web applications suitable for new approaches in taking steps towards a `more' natural interaction between users of basic online social networking services. One of the properties of ¿today's Web¿ is the ease by which people develop online applications. This paper focuses on the possibility to use spatial database management systems as the building blocks for virtual world like applications facilitating the development of immersive systems for small developers. We propose a model for such an application, the role of the spatial database and elements that should be taken into consideration in the development process. We underline the advantages and disadvantages of using spatial databases for these systems.
