Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that early next year we will be streamlining your Photostream experience by consolidating the feature and giving you more opportunities to share your IMVU moments more than ever before. Starting early next year, Photostream will redirect to the Feed on Next.

A few questions probably come up. Why is this being done and how it is going to improve your experience on IMVU?

Here are the details:

1. We are dedicated to making the best possible experience for the Community. Consolidating Photostream to one Feed will allow you to not only have a seamless experience, but also make it easier to share your IMVU photos.

2. Additionally, we have been hard at work making Photobooth better for our users. You can use it to upload a photo, then have fun customizing it with backgrounds, poses, scribble and filters. You will see that you have an option to upload a Photo from your Chat room experience or choose from any of our unique backgrounds. Check out the ones for the holidays! And yes, there will be more for the New Year and beyond.

3. Remember, the Feed is also available to users on iOS and Android Mobile devices.

But wait...there’s even MORE!

Look for the following exciting new features to the Feed to take place early next year:

1. Permanent posts! At this time your posts expire after 30 days and are gone forever. When you start using the new Feed you will be able to go back further than 30 days. How awesome is that?

2. New Profile Pages! You’ll be able to keep track of your own Feed. See your Feed integrated within Profile Pages and browse your friend’s Feeds.

3. Comments! Imagine using your own animated emoji to show your reaction to a friend’s photo. That's right. WithMoji coming to the Feed. Smile

Any questions? Just let us know.

Thank you.

UPDATE 1/4/2017: some of my more detailed replies HERE and HERE

UPDATE 2/3/2017: constructive feedback about the Next Feed to staff HERE.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for your patience while a reply was being worked on to address your concerns.

IMVU is still planning to direct Photo Stream to the Next Feed.

This has to do with stability issues.

As some of you know, the Photo Stream is having regular stability issues. In recent Forum posts you saw that deleted comments were coming back and in another post you saw that comments in the Photo Stream were reversed.

In an effort to resolve the stability issue and improve your experience, we are moving the Photo Stream over to one Feed. We are confident that this will lead to less problems and give you a more stable experience.

On that note, we understand that some of you are very unhappy with this change. We know Next is a work in progress and we know it is far from perfect, for now.

We are working regularly to make it better by adding new and existing features to the experience.

Yes, we are listening to you and taking your feedback into account, too. This is why a reply did not come out immediately.

Information about the Next Feed:

--- We are working out the possibility of allowing users the ability to see all products used in a picture, including furniture and rooms.
--- Daily Spin just launched on Next. This will give users the chance to spin and win free Promo Credits as well as shop for items and exclusive WithMoji Packs.
--- We are considering allowing users to group their friends into Feed lists, prioritize which friends are seen first and even flip back and forth. Let us know your thoughts on this one.
--- You can link to a particular picture on the Next Feed.
--- Next is going to have its own catalog in the near future.
--- Users can now delete comments in their thread as well as any comments they post in other threads. This is going to help a great deal with eliminating spammers. You can further control spam on Next by selecting Photos only which will take out the text from spammers when you are viewing your feed.
--- In the future you will be able to access just your Feed in the Next Feed. At this time you can currently see your personal feed via the Profile Card on Next.
--- The basic picture Feed in Next will remain square in shape because trying to incorporate landscape and portrait sizes lead to stability issues.
--- Regular updates about Next will be in its own post starting early next year.

User Concerns & Questions:

--- Users will not be forced to use Next for other features so you can easily revert back to Original mode.

(1) If you close your browser from Next, every time you type
www.imvu.com you will revert back to Next because you are “cookied”.
(2) If you sign up on Next, you will always default to Next after login.
(3) Note: if you don't sign out and just close your browser while
in Next, then it'll open in Next. The same goes for IMVU Original.

--- If you are on IMVU Original Web, all of your features will be available to you, except for Photo Stream, which will lead you back to Next.
--- Original IMVU Web/Client will remain fully functional, and you will be able to access it.
--- Your Photo Albums will always be in your account. They will not be deleted by IMVU.
--- You can still access the Client in all the ways you already do, including your PC.
--- Pulse is currently available on IMVU Original.
--- Currently the Photo Stream button on IMVU Original will remain.

We encourage you to keep an open dialog on what you would like to see to make Next an improvement from your current IMVU experience. We will do what we can to continue to navigate the best possible experience for everyone.

We understand that some of you do not wish to use Next. We shall respect your decision, but if you change your mind we’ll be around to assist you.

In closing, feel free to give constructive feedback but please understand that IMVU is going on holiday from the evening of December 23rd to January 2nd.

Thanks for listening.

I hate the new stream with a passion.. Constantly losing my spot when on mobile and i go to comment on someone's photo, or on web when people add photos it scroll back up. I also hate the layout. To me, it was much better before. Sometimes basic is better. The new layout is ugly and crowded looking. I really hope you guys are not planning to switch the whole thing over to the "next" version. The new stream looks too much like Instagram. The next version is just a big fail in my personal opinion.

Also I am unable to upload pictures from mobile or on web version, not sure if I'm the only one.

This is really great

The developers should ask GAF210 how to improve IMVU
He could explain them how it works

Hello, just thought i give users an extra thing to remove from their lists of complains over IMVU next profile card outfits, ok well see IMVU next already has default outfits but we as a community can't take 5 seconds to figure it out, literally 5 seconds, we only see what we don't like but look:
Step 1: Go to Imvu next.
Step 2: open inventory tab, choose what outfit you would like as default, and load it.
Step 3: click the little dots on the corner and select "set as profile look", now change outfit and voila, your old outfit is shown. Thanks for anyone who takes the time to learn, now you can concentrate on other things that are faulty on IMVU next.

While this is off topic, I commend you for figuring out this method of setting a default outfit & posting it for others to see Wink

I do have a question - is there a tutorial anywhere on Next that tells one how to do that? Or any other "new and improved" functions of Next?

Edit to Add: This is another issue that shows the Next Complaints/Issues thread that was closed needs to be reopened, dunnit? Now that people are more or less forced to use Next, they should have a general thread to report this stuff since Staff allegedly reads these threads... just sayin'

sorry for being off topic but i noticed everyone complaining about the outfits on the last forum that hit 100, and i can't remember if there is a tutorial in any way, but i do remember seeing that thing about default outfits before in one of the IMVU next mobile uploads, i just can't recall which forum, sorry for not being much help and for going off topic, i'm not so fond of forums just thought i help remove the outfit default subject so users can concentrate on other problems of IMVU next. (last thing i post, sorry.)

I do too, well done and thanks!

Why is it that users have to figure this stuff out and let us know? Why do staff continually ignore us and leave our questions unanswered?
