Should we gag or celebrate IMVU
"IMVU is meant for all ages, however there are a growing amount of people using it as a dating website. The whole thing seems to run smoothly as ages are filtered by strict verification methods so that adult sections can only be visited by an adult etc."
As a consumer of Virtual Reality I hate IMVU. Its cheap, its cheesy, it full of children. Movement is a joke, and I can't stand more than 1 minute being in world. Blogging about IMVU is something of an effort for me.
But as a professional I love the fact that someone essentially lifted the most simplistic and basic features of Second Life and figured out how to make money at it.
IMVU proves and Virtual Reality will be a viable business very soon. Maybe it even proves there is a future for Second Life.
