What does IMVU mean to you?

We'd like to know.

This is not a contest nor is there any type of compensation.

If you choose to do this you are sharing your love of IMVU with the world.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

1. First, we need to know if this interests you. We are taking a survey. When we have more information we will come back with more information.

2. This will be shared online especially through Social Media, we suspect.

3. We want our users to include a picture of their avatar and their real self. They will tell us in an audio in 100 words or less what IMVU means to them.

4. We are not planning to share your name or anything personal other than your personal picture alongside your avatar.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

We want the world to see IMVU touches the lives of real people. We're proud of it. We want you to be proud, too.

Let us know if you are intrigued.

Let us know if you have questions.

Remember, this is a work in progress and will be fine tuned with your input.

Thanks!

Hard for me to believe I am the first one here....
What did imvu mean to me? It was the place where i met my darling husband over ten years ago. He was in England, I was in the States. Lots of people here know that already. It was a creative outlet for all that time. I made the jump from paint and brushes to digital and learned to use photoshop so i could do that. It has been a central theme in my life for a decade. Making products, making beautiful or thoughtful or silly images.......generally connecting with like minded artists and folks who share the same passions I do has been an engaging and delightful time. I have logged in everyday for 10 years on at least one account except for a few trips when i did not have internet access.

My family and friends never understood what i was doing here. For me it has always been more than dress-up-your-dolly. Stretching my skills to texture items to the best of my ability was a challenge that kept me busy for years. All that aside, I have met some really great people here. Will I send you a picture of me in RL and allow my story to be used for marketing? Probably not, but you got the story all the same.

Adding- imvu was never a game...the new imvu is. Maybe they should call it imgu now.

There are many on here that do meet others outside of the realm of IMVU, so I think this may be something that would interest them greatly.

I don't mix the two worlds more than I have to. Though this idea isn't something that would interest me. This would be something that I would be willing to at least let my friends know about.

That will come later. Smile I imagine most people would do the audio on their device.

Right now we'd like to see the picture with the avatar in this thread as well as what IMVU means to said user.

Over at our Instagram someone already did a photo/avatar combination. This is a good sample. We're thinking of maybe animating your avatar but that is still in discussion:

My relationship with imvu is of deep love and thanks!
I from Spain but live in Brazil
I'm an orphan and in 2008 she told me imvu a psychotherapist, because I did not know
What was family (having siblings, parents, family in general ...)
Here I met many good people, made many friends, and my life became happy.
I went through everything that in real a normal person passes and was very useful for my psychological development
I learned to write in several languages, I knew cultures, beliefs, it was a real experience for my life!
I knew beautiful countries that only dream could be.
Thank you very much for this chat, the respectful way that is led by its moderators!
All I have to do is say THANK YOU IMVU I LOVE BEING HERE !!!!

This idea is interesting but I could not fully participate as I never share my RL picture on IMVU. Those who I become close too and friend outside of IMVU know more about me ofc. But for the general public of IMVU, my RL is not a part of IMVU. But, here is what I can share.....

When I joined IMVU 5 years ago I was (and still am) disabled. Due to the nature of my disability, I could not walk at the time I joined. IMVU was a way to socialize and meet people. I never really thought I would love this place as much as I do. I found a creative outlet here and I also made some amazing friends who are like family to me. It gave me a chance to enjoy life instead of being depressed in my house all the time. Now that I am doing better, and I can walk and do more in RL, I still come back to IMVU. I cherish my friends here, and I love creating and performing. It has become a part of my life and gone beyond IMVU to RL with some of my closest friends on here. Added bonus: I have learned so much about other countries from people on here. I love being able to talk to people from around the world!!

This is a picture of my avatar:

I am member of imvu 10 years and the only one reason why i am here is the Art!!! I love to create in imvu. Is a great place to relax from real life and to be creative. I have here my own group " TheTravelOfArt" with many great imvu artist's and we have fun!
I love imvu, but i dont like the managers of imvu. Becouse they never hear of their costumers and make many bad changes like Stream to Next and Feed. What ever! Good imvu Bad managers! Kisses

Rolling Eyes

I always imagined that love is a matter of chemical.

Love makes the world rounds. Love also is weird and can be messy sometimes. And it uses to make our head to spin because it is the answer for almost all the problems.

I’m in loving with IMVU since the first champagne.

LOL.


In 2009, I was looking for some image of a chair and search machines indicated IMVU. I joined without know that it was a game or something like that. When I started I just liked the idea to dress up the avatar, get some rooms and the like.

For long time, I just played alone.

One day, I just found a good brother; later I also found a good sister in law. Both of them living very far from me.

For someone like me that was crying because had lost a real sister that passed away, finding good friends on here (like my real family) it was really great – despite I have my real good people, IMVU made me find amazing friends.


That’s why I love IMVU - it is a great opportunity to make good real friends.

My Love for IMVU is brought into existence by the reasons why I Love this centrifugally awesome site. IMVU has brought many people together. Whether in a lasting friendship that beats the tests of time or in Love that carries the lot of us through Life, they have done it all. They help people recover from broken hearts, they help them rise up from their short comings and shake themselves loose from the grip of depression. IMVU is Our Therapy and Our own little worlds in which We decide who may join Us and who may not join Us.
They help people regain their self confidence and self esteem.
On top of all that, I do like the Staff a lot. They have been very helpful in making personal experiences, throughout the years, more fun and memorable. I miss many of the people that were part of My IMVU Family back when I was the second strongest Queen in IMVU. I forgot my password to that account. But We have this one I have now to do miracles with.
Come join IMVU and experience Life in an alternate reality, a virtual reality, become whatever You want to become, have massive amounts of fun while letting Your true self breathe.
Once You are with IMVU, look up Angie Craig or angiedyancraig. Make an add request for friendship, then wait for Me to accept. Let's get to know one another. :-*

IMVU means so much to me. Over the years my focus changed. When I first joined it was all about living a fun, new, exciting alternate realty where I could be anything I wanted to be. I had to try a little of this and a little of that. But now, IMVU has become a place of joy and comfort. After a long day at work I know I can come on IMVU to escape. I have made lifelong friendships. Today on IMVU I am 100% myself. I can be myself and hang out with a few fantastic friends who genuinely care, without needing or wanting a hundred “so-called-friends”. I love art and am constantly changing my display picture, I love dressing up and have entered hundreds of outfit contest, I love having a hobby and a creative outlet. I always try to learn new things on how to improve my creator skill level. As in real life, I love being silly and joking around with my friends. Today IMVU is filled with laughter and fun.
