UPDATES:

Available in client versions 516.8 and up are some cool enhancements and AP-exclusive features to this already wildly popular feature!

What are the enhancements?

1] AP-only profiles for our Access Pass community members - This will be available in the upcoming releases 516.12 and above.

You suggested and we complied! Our Access Pass community members can now set their Get Matched profiles to be viewable by other AP users only AND therefore add AP-themed content such as stories and photos to it.

Simple go to "update your profile and select the "Only show to AP users only" option to set your profile to AP and then add AP photos/story to it.

Remember: Your avatar/profile card photos, taglines and interests still need to remain GA. The change only applies to the customizable Get Matched profiles.

If you are an AP member and you are viewing a profile that is set to be AP-only then you will see that indication in the upper right corner of that profile.

Don't want to see AP profiles even if you are a AP member? No worries.. Simply use the match preferences to see GA users only.

At this time, we do not have a way for a AP customer to have both GA and AP profiles for Get Matched.

2] Photo re-ordering for all - This is available in releases 516.8 and up

All customers can now easily re-arrange their photos on the Get Matched profile with a simple drag and drop. Check it out now!

You can see both of the changes under the "update your profile" option in Get Matched:



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are delighted to introduce a new fun way to meet new people and get connected with the ones that share your interests!

Introducing...Get Matched!

This is a feature we have been working on with feedback from some of YOU - our community members. It is fun it is simple, and it is a great way to find new friends to connect with on IMVU.

Download the latest version of our 3D Chat client to check out the new experience.

You will see the new Get Matched button on your client home screen as well as the Community menu on your account page.





Everyone will have access to Get Matched feature at launch, however, you do have a way to opt-out easily.

What can you do with Get Matched?







Set up your own profile exclusively for this feature
--Choose a featured photo from your photo albums - to start with this will be your current avatar card photo
--Choose additional 4 photos to express your style, flair- again from your photo albums. Take some fresh new photos or use what you already have saved
--Write your story - tell others what you like, what your interests are so you discover new connections that are just right for you. The story starts with your current tagline but its yours to update





Browse profiles of others to see who you "like" or want to "pass"
--You can view their Get Matched profiles including main featured photo + 4 additional photos, their story etc
--Like what you see then "like" them or simply "pass" to move on
--If someone you "like" likes you back, its a "match" and you will get those notifications - in your IMVU inbox as well as via email (you can always change those email preferences)







Set your Get Matched preferences to select exactly who is shown to you as potential connections
--Choose whether you want to see males, females or both
--Choose whether you want to see VIPs or all users
--Choose whether you want to see GA, AP or all (if you have Access Pass)
--Choose the age range of the people you see (teens only see teens and adults see adults)



Help us keep the experience safe by flagging any profiles that are not compliant with our policies
--All Get Matched profiles must be General Audience (GA) appropriate
--You can flag the story or the photos shown



Easily opt out and back in if you choose to do so.
--You can opt out using the option available on your Get Matched profile. Opting out means your profile will not be shown to anyone else.
**Please note that everyone is opted in at the launch of this feature, however, unless you use the feature and "like" someone there is not mutual liking and hence any match





--If you want to opt back in, simply open Get Matched and like or pass someone - we will prompt you to opt back in

We sincerely hope everyone enjoys this fun and new way to browse profiles of other IMVU community members and make lots of friends from around the world![/i]

FAQs:

Do I have to use Get Matched?

No. Its completely optional. Your profile will be shown to others at the launch of this feature, however unless you participate and like/pass, you will not get any match notifications

What is shown on my Get Matched profile at the start?

Before you update, your Get Matched profile will have your current avatar photo as the main featured photo plus your current tagline as your "story".

You can change the featured photo and add four additional ones with any images already saved or uploaded to your photo albums on IMVU

You can also edit your "story" to add more information about yourself so people know who you are and what you like

Can teens get matched with adults and vice versa?

No. Teen profiles are shown to other teens and adult profiles are shown to other adults.

Which photos can I add to my Get Matched profile?

Any photos that you have saved in your IMVU albums - including your default album

How do I reorder my photos once added to my Get Matched profile?

With client versions 515.2 and up, you will be able to re-order your profile photos - including switching which one of the 5 photos show up as your featured photo - 1st position.

Simply go to "update your profile" and do so:





What is Get Matched "story"?

Initially your story will be the same as your tagline. You can however update it to add more information. The story you add to your Get Matched profile does not show up on your avatar cards as your tagline

What age is shown on user profiles?

--For teens, the actual age that they have used during registration is shown.
--For adults who have chosen to hide their age, profile in Get Matched shows the age to be 18+
--For adults who have made their age visible, profile in Get Matched shows the actual age

How does the gender selection work?

If users have chosen to hide their gender on their avatar cards,, then we still use the gender they have selected for their account for searching purpose

How do I flag someone who is showing up as an adult but states "I am actually 15" etc?

Please note that the default "story" in Get Matched is the tagline from that account till a customer chooses to edit and add to it. If you see any inappropriate content or photos in a Get Matched profiles, simply use the Flag option and choose whether you are choosing to flag the story or photos.

How do I opt out?

Go to Get Matched feature in the client
Click on Update my Profile option
Choose to opt out

Since I had a whole bunch of various complaints all scattered out.. I have decided to compile them all together and then i'm not saying anything else on this thread.

1. I would first like to start off by saying.. I think this new idea is dumb and I don't like it.

2. My first issue with it is.. the size of the picture that they use.. I find it distorts the picture and makes it look ugly.

2. The filter function doesn't make any sense.. I wasn't sure if the buttons being yellow meant that the filter was on or the filter was off. And the little "Click to Select" doesn't clarify if that means to Click to turn the filter on or to click to turn the filter off.

3. Being that there is an AP filter but not being able to search for people that might share common AP interests is a HUGE turn off and defeats the purpose of as was written "Matching people up with common interests"

In my opinion, not being able to share AP interests alienates the AP community and is a pointless gesture to the AP community.

4. Being automatically opted in.. I was also not impressed with. I wish that IMVU would go with auto opt out especially when dealing with things that are with the community.

So my overall opinion of this new thing on the client.. it has no redeemable qualities and should be removed. Or users should finally be given the ability to move buttons around so they can have buttons available to them that they WILL use and not be reminded of new IMVU features that they will NOT use.

I'm pretty sure if the button is gray then that gender is not selected, because you cannot 'gray' both buttons.

That being said, props for allowing me to match with females only.

Lmao ... I'm almost tempted to update just to tinker with this and confirm that there is no one who is a match to me! Very Happy

No thanks. I don't need IMVU suggesting who will be my friends. I make friends by getting to know who they are, not because of some stupid feature where the only basis of being matches is you like them and they like you. Being a match doesn't make you good friends. So naturally, I've opted out. Forget it. I decide who I will be friends with by getting to know them not because they were suggested to me by someone or something else.
