About IMVU

IMVU is more of a 3D avatar chat than a virtual world, but it does have a lot of features of the latter. You can customize your avatar and 3D environments, buy special game currency, and create and sell virtual items. Every IMVU user gets his or her own homepage which they can modify to their liking. This social network has a lot of groups and "neighborhoods" (such as fantasy, goth, vampire and sci-fi) for people with similar interests to hang out and chat. IMVU has over 100 million members, and as much as 100,000 are online at all times.

You can also exchange IMVU currency for real money with 3rd party exchange services if you're a Creator who designs and sells items.

About Second Life

Second Life is a virtual world developed by Linden Lab. The members can interact with each other through their virtual avatars, participate in group activities and explore. You can create virtual objects using built-in 3D modeling software, and even program their behavior. Users are required to be at least 18 years of age to join. SL has a diverse international community with many interesting subcultures such as steampunk, neko, and medieval fantasy. Unlike in IMVU, there are no restrictions on avatar appearance - they don't have to look human at all.

Second Life currency is the Linden dollar; these are used for buying, selling or renting virtual property, and may be exchanged into real money.

Other Virtual Worlds

There are several sites similar to IMVU, and also some virtual worlds which share many features with Second Life, although none of them are as popular. If you're looking for an IMVU alternative you might want to check out There.com or Smeet.com. Second Life players who are looking for a new home online might want to try Kitely, Kaneva, or ActiveWorlds.

      I tried Second Life once, never again. I didn't experience THAT bad of lag but it was quite a bit laggy whereas IMVU hardly ever lags me unless people are being assholes or something. (Which if you go to the right rooms, easily avoidable) The thing about it being for kids is because there are more teenagers on the site which how is that such a bad thing? as far as graphics go its more of a preference thing.

      Second Life was more realistic which was why I hated it, IMVU still looks real but its idealized so the avatars aren't so dang ugly. If you like realistic Second Life is better graphics but I prefer IMVU in this department as well. Also people on IMVU are generally much more friendly, hardly anyone talked to me on second life the one day I was there because they were too busy flying over my freaking head. -_-

      Anyway, you CAN move in imvu just not the same way 1: most avatars are animated and move around in place its not like your a statue or something geez, plus there are actions you can purchase in the store to do other movements like dancing or anything really. Also you don't technically have to pay for anything on IMVU, only downside is you need to sit through ads a lot to earn creds. Second life you start out with shit, you can't get shit really, when you do get shit you have to go through "unpacking" like wtf? you have to pretty much buy everything n imvu you only have to pay if you want more creds or like VIP membership or something.

      And now the next issue, the noob stuff. If you do things right in the beginning people probs wont tell your a noob.

      How not to be a "noob" if your new:

      1: Don't be an ass and randomly slap or kick someone or something just because you want to check out the actions, its annoying that's why a lot of people are "noobs"

      2: the "noob look" this is entirely avoidable!(I will explain after explaining the look a bit) The look is really when you just look retarded. if you get rid of your head you start with you will have a huge bobble head, looks stupid and everyone will think you are stupid walking around like this. So just use your original head?, ok?, okay. And then if you buy 3 simple things, a new top, bottom, and hair you will not look so noobish, trust me you should have enough left over to buy even more stuff than that.

      you will get a total of 5,000 credits to begin just from going through the tutorial. Then 2,000 for just confirming your email so yeah you'll have enough not to mention starter "quests" there are plenty of ways to get creds. On SL no fuckin way they basically say pay or fuck you, that's how I feel.

      Having played both.. and explored both.. I very much like Second Life better... with IMVU the cost to create is too high.. In second life the cost to create can be anywhere from free to maybe about 1$ usd.. and that just depends on what you are doing.. As a creator I mostly sell textures.. such as eyes for example.. it cost me only a few cents (usd equivalent) or like 10L$ and that 10L$ turned in to multiple hundreds of L$ .. On IMVU the price is much greater.. and last i was on there.. there wasn't a real user friendly way of testing your work.. In IMVU I believe i was able to upload my first creation for free.. but after that its too much.. They sure want to make sure you pay them a lot to use even your own creations which is crazy.. Second life even with mesh uploads i think I have only spent like 20L at the most on a mesh item i created.. which is very very small.. In IMVU you cant create a decent avatar without spending quite a bit.. while in second life you can create a decent avatar for free if your good at looking.. or for a couple hundred L$ which is like 2$.. as far as i have been able to tell with IMVU to get anything that looks decent your spending almost 1-2$ on every item.. so getting a decent avatar is a bit more costly there.. Needless to say it is a lot easier and cheaper for a creator to start on second life.. than it is with IMVU.. in my personal experience.. Some say second life characters are ugly.. well IMVU's defaults are ugly as well. . In second life the characters can be very appealing with some time and effort put in.. the same could probably be said about IMVU characters as well... however you will probably spend MORE money in IMVU to do it.. Second life though it kind of helps knowing someone already in SL.. cause they could show you all the sweet spots for freebies,promos,and awesome sales.. Some people in SL though are willing to take newbies under their wing and help them make a decent look to start out with.. just got to be brave enough to say something.. I have helped out many people.. also IMVU and SL are quite different in ideas though.. IMVU is just a chat room with 3D characters.. you don't really have an open world concept like you do with SL.. SL is supposed to be your dream "second" life world.. where you can have a sort of second chance and become what you might not have been able to become in real life.. IMVU again.. is a chat room.. and only really meant to be a chat room.. IMVU is also mainly used by kids and teens.. whereas second life is mostly adults from 18 up past 50+ So it really just depends on what you want.. also SL gives you chances to make in game currency by getting jobs there.. which can help you pay nothing on your avatar.. there isn't such things in IMVU .. or well last i played it anyway.. anyway again in a creator standpoint.. SL is king.. open world.. sandbox..more freedom.. cheaper uploads.. the ability to change L in to real money.. so there is an ability to bring in extra funds in to your real life household.. in both worlds tho.. they are only as ugly as you make them..

      I have used both and so far I prefer Second Life, it offers much more security from stalkers, drama queens, trolls and sleaze bags, then IMVU, yes IMVU program is easier to use, and I am struggling to learn the inventory system of Second Life but I know in time I will get use to it.

      IMVU has a lot to offer but fails miserably in places. there is no way to protect you from stalkers or cyber trolls,

      IMVU is being flooded by children who have no qualms in getting APs, and age verification now. APS and age verification are suppose to offer more protection and yet now there is no protection from it. IMVU so expensive now. yes the graphics have improved, and the developers products are mind blowing at times, but even now IMVU is making it harder for the Developers to produce what they want. IMVU has no problem banning developers if they fail to mark their products the right way, now there is talks and rumors that IMVU is coming down hard on people that practice BDSM, i believe what people do in their private rooms their own business as long as it not hurting anyone.

      i heard of people being permanently banned for failing to make a public room AP or having something AP in a none AP room. people spend a hell of a lot of money why should they be disabled for a mistake!

      even now IMVU is become more restrictive with developers, once you could develop as an AP now you must be VIP which costs money.

      in order for IMVU to become family orientated they are alienating those that put the most money into their program by restricting their rights.

      i want to go to an adult site and hang with other adults not children and i don't want them contacting me especially after i paid for an AP to stop that from happening. I don't want people IMing me so they can ask for my Skype address. Hello you're in a chat site, why do that? i don't want people begging me for gifts or creds.

      i been on Second Life for a little while and i can say i never had that. not once! i still have my account on IMVU but from now on I am sticking with Second Life. I rather safety over an easier program that doesn't give a shit in hell about their players other then how much money they can squeeze out of them.

      Both have their pros and cons about them. I've played both but discovered if you don't have a fully decked out computing device then you might as well pass SL on by because you will run into loads of issues trying to run the game. The graphics for both are amazing but see that creating stuff is a little more straight forward on IMVU compared to SL. Yes there are youngsters that play SL but they are restricted to certain areas unless they find a way around those restrictions. Not sure how long I've been on IMVU but have enjoyed my experience on there has been nothing but amazing. I've bought a little bit of everything except for a special pass. Interesting poll though.

      I don't even know what to say. IMVU just brainwashes you making you spend lots of money and wasting your time staring at a screen all day. Only reason why IMVU is more popular in votes are because of kids. I'm so tired of kids doing things they're not old enough to. I see no competition. I wasted so much time and money on IMVU. I feel sorry for the people who play it.

      I downloaded SL today and I ended up uninstalling it today. Why? Well, I love how SL has a big community and their shop is big also, so I wanted to explore the program. Before I could do that, I had to shop for skins, clothes, etc. I love creating and decorating my avi and you don't have to pay for the stuff unlike imvu. However, before I could actually try on the skins and clothes I "bought," I had to unpack it, but unpacking them WAS SUCH A PAIN!!!!!!! Seriously, I don't understand why they can't just put it in my inventory without having me to jump through a lot of hoops. That's why I uninstalled SL on the same day <.<"

      Also adults are or lowlifes, or disabled or stay home, or gays or people left behind. Majority have the same mentality as high schoolers so holding a conversation is like holding with a retard troll from high school with no sense of reality, this people are out o normality, you hold a conversation with university friend or some one even at bar is nice the people in imvu are not normal or out of there and the conversation are retarded. Or there is drama or trolling or pseudointellecutuas high schoolers mentality. This place was retarded now is full retard.

      Pretty much this summarized it:

      Second life:

      A virtual world in which a desperately lonely person can adopt an alter ego and live out an utterly pointless existence every bit as mundane as their non-virtual life

      A digital world where people without a first life mingle and be pathetic togethor in harmony.

      An unstable, unsecured virtual real time chat platform/medium, that claims no responsibility for anything, brought to you by the creator of an internet video conferencing sofeware, which was later acquired by RealNetworks. Players are generally in their 20s or 40s'

      Where one (as a predator or victim) can waste lots of real time and monies w/ delusions of reliving a bettered remembered "glory days" as any sex or creature or thing, killing time w/ desperate housewives, retirees, drunks, the mentally ill and different dregs of ppls on Government Assistance, validating their time playing by creating crap or on sexual conquests, while they avoid their real life (aka 1st life) waiting for their 3rd life (aka death).

      IMVU:

      Usualy filled with people who think they are better than you just because they dont have "Guest" before their name and they call everyone and everything a noob. The people who call everything and everyone a noob usually have a bunch of friends on imvu because they dont have any in real life and dont have a life so they spend every min of it online on imvu full of dumb ass no-lives and stuck up bitches and credit whores. If you want to look half decent in this game, be ready to max out

Many are ill in the head. There are many lowlifes also uk america and other places and desperate housewife. Plenty of attention whores hang on clubs they to fugly to be noticed in real so they crave attention in internet. Than is this cool guys or bad boys in real basement dwellers that try so hard to be what they not in real. Second life is disaster totally so it not even worth to mention. All what people think there is about pixel fucking or cam masturbation it just does not get any sadder. They also rate each other masturbation in blogs it just does not get any more pathetic dirty old bastard is a blog that where this 40 years old left over writes about her experiences and she has years doing . In sl majority thinks they big st and usually they the lowest in real, just Obnoxious turds trying to get attention from the rest you'll hear them on clubs trying to sell how hot they are by saying all kind of shit. Short imvu is fail second lie is super failure and scary people are real fuked in the head.

As expected, the only harm they do is make themselves look like buhurt idiots who will no one gives a fuck. Majority of AP rooms is where all basement dwellers hang in order to get pixel sx or cam masturbation some times. Is filled with rejects. There are also many sick fuks but less than second life. There are also furries and god knows. Rest is developers who tying to make some profit but end up getting fked by imvu all time lol is just sad. While imvu makes millions they make a sht.

      imvu features all stereotypes from wig-gers to emos indies swags to all abandons in rl. Majority of rooms are filled with lowlifes attention whores from uk ghettos/ america ghettos and Australia ghettos.Many are fugly inside out. Rest is desperate house wifes with no live and people on pension. Big bts small waist avatar and swags are largely in the lose.

      @anonymous: Your idea of secondlife is all wrong and that is ok IMVU is more of a game/social site...secondlife is not a game!...simply because linden dollars can be converted into real money many users make a lucrative living from secondlife...so there is a clear line between imvu and secondlife users...not a bad thing but I think it's highly misunderstood

      I have used both in the past. I just like IMVU more, it was much more simple and I was able to find people to talk with a lot easier. I Played SL for a while and I honestly could not get into. The graphics were not the best, and I did not see a way to earn money for free. Yes users can be rude but you find elietest everywhere you go. I read through the reviews and SL users were calling IMVU users 10 and 12 year olds. I bet I will get hate for saying this but can we all be mature and stop insulting each other over what someone likes?

      @anonymous: Lol! have you actually tried secondlife? Secondlife has endless possibility it's amazing (assuming your computer is powerful enough to run it properly) and building is the main feature as well as one of the reasons SL is so great. Everything you can do in IMVU is possible in Secondlife, the learning curve just takes a bit more to get around that's all. If you would like to try a platform where the "Shit" you make is more then a prop try Secondlife.

      Clubbing, sword fighting, fps shooter, rpg, chatroom, building, virtual pets, roleplay, scripting (LSL) and of course the ability to customize your avatar EXACTLY the way you want, these are just a few things possible in secondlife :3

      IMVU is great don't get me wrong. You were just wrong to say you can't build or run your own club on secondlife.

      @anonymous: I have to disagree with that! I dealt with a white supremacist on IMVU. So first of all..learn to type/talk and second... racism is everywhere.

      I don't need a SECOND LIFE, (pun intended). I prefer IMVU due to the simplicity and the fact that it's just a way to free yourself from real life...not create another. For those who rag on IMVU users, it's silly to me. We are ALL entitled to our own choices. I doesn't mean we don't have a life or can't afford it, we just prefer something a little less time consuming.

      I'll have to go with IMVU, just because of how simple it is. Trying Second Life, I had no idea what was going on. They give no tutorial at all when you start, and they don't give you any money so you can start on your own avatar. Plus, the places tend to be to big for it's own good. Takes to long to load. I will give SL another chance, because I do see potential with it, but as for now I'm sticking with IMVU.

      You can not compare IMVU and Second Life, these are two different things.

      IMVU is an improved 3D Chat.

      Second Life is a virtual world where opportunities seem endless.

      IMVU is first easier because much more limited.

      Second Life requires a longer period of adaptation, which is normal because its possibilities are much larger.

      Would you compare a small automatic car to a space shuttle?

      @anonymous: You guys are seriously fucking babies! You guys have to argue just because you think that IMVU or Second Life is better? No one can win this fight. Nia, if you think IMVU is better,suck Draycko"s dick. And Draycko, leave NIa alone and have fun with your "Second life" in Second life. You both need more practice to being a mature person. A mature person wouldn't fight over which virtual world is better. I rather argue about a totally important event than to argue about what stupid virtual world is better! Oh lord!

      @anonymous: Nia, after you said that when you get membership on IMVU, they will change you name from having a Guest_ in front of it, it made me have something to say. Second life is way better because they don't make a stupid plan by putting a Guest_ in front of your fucking name. Second Life doesn't put nothing in your name. Once you sign up, you're okay to go. The reason why IMVU puts "GUEST_" in you name because they want you to buy a membership so you can remove that.
