What is IMVU
Have you ever wondered what IMVU stands for? I have!. IMVU simply means, “Instant Messaging Virtual Universe”.
IMVU claims to be an online life simulator. It’s a place where you can meet people from all over the world to party, join virtual chats with friends, host a virtual event, or go on a virtual date. It’s quite different from popular social media apps such as Facebook or even Onlyfans. On IMVU, you create avatars to reflect your style and use your IMVU avatar to interact with other people.
On IMVU you can create your 3D IMVU character, it can be anything you want, you can customise your own animated emoji and send messages in super fun chat rooms. Some people think of IMVU as a dating site because of the chat rooms.
IMVU is also the world’s largest avatar-based social network where IMVU users can earn real money by creating virtual products and also hosting events.
