IMVU ended year 2013 with a blast – with brand-new features, parties with its community members, and a gift-laden countdown to the New Year! December is the month to celebrate the holidays, spend time with family and friends, enjoy winter activities – or escape from the chilly weather in cozy settings, and of course have a gala party on NYE to ring in the next year in style. IMVU users did it all…. and we loved joining in the celebrations.
December 18th was our very own Ugly Sweater Party where community members dressed up their avatars in virtual versions of crazy, silly, outlandish holiday outfits and joined the party taking place in various chat rooms – decorated to the hilt for the season. There was nothing “ugly” about the fun had by all.
The IMVU team was determined to make chatting and connecting with friends even better for our customers and just in time for the holiday break when everyone is spending lots of time on IMVU with their friends. We launched a completely revamped look for our very popular chat room experience – complete with a new feature called Themes to showcase the variety and creativity of of our community members as they set up and decorate their rooms.
Shared Rooms was another feature that we launched in December – in response to a popular request by our customers. The new feature allows friends, business partners to set up, decorate and manage chat rooms together using scenes and furniture from both their collections. Hundreds of rooms have already been purchased and shared by our users to make their friendships and connections even deeper.
To say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014, we had a “10-day Countdown to 2014” event where our customers could log in every day and get a free gift. All the collected gifts were perfect to decorate the ultimate winter scene we gifted on January 1st. We are now gearing up for another joyous year for IMVU and its community!
Have a wonderful year filled with fun, friends, and family!
