3D chat application.

A chat application - look to your right, you'll probably see an ad of it - where you can create a 3D avatar, chat in 3D rooms and perform actions with the other avatars (users).
You can also customise your avatar by using credits (IMVU's virtual currency) to buy stuff from other players.
IMVU is the most popular 3D chat application.

A virtual game people play where they go clubbing, dancing, buy clothes, and gift each other stuff. It's kinda like the Sims, except you can't build your own town. Most of the people there treat it as if it is real life, so if you slap or insult their character they will become very angry and pound away at their keyboards at you. Also, the majority of the people who play this game are 14-18 and tend to be the more "nerdy" type.

You can also have sex, children, and get married in this game!
Me: Wanna go to the mall today?
Friend: No, not now. My girlfriend and I are at the amusement park!
Me: Oh my God, you're gay?? Why didn't you tell me?
Friend: What? No. I'm a guy on IMVU and I have a girlfriend.
Me: Oh, so wanna go to the ACTUAL mall?
Friend: Uhm, actually, can you get on IMVU, my girlfriend wants to meet you...
Me: Oh god **powers on computer**, I'm getting tired of being a loser with you. You need to get out of the house ASAP!

To get cheated, "indian giver" to have something taken back after you have bought it or it has been given to you.
Due to IMVU`s constantly changing terms of service tens of thousands of virtual items that users have bought are being rerated as not suitable to be used on IMVU, and are being deleted from user accounts.
yo, you said you were going to sell me your ipod now you say you changed your mind and you want it back?
Don`t IMVU me like this dude!

Your brother took back those shoes he gave you?
Man, he IMVU`ed you BAD!

The shittiest, laggiest 3D chat game ever, 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 your credit card. Why not just fuck this game and go play Second Life instead? At least then you don't need to be a rich whore/stuck up kid to be able to change your avatar and doesn't lag the living shit out of your computer. Maybe there are basement dwellers on SL, but at least there's a drastically lower percentage of credit whores.
Look to the left, right, EVERY FUCKING PIXEL ON YOUR SCREEN, you will find at least one IMVU ad 95 percent of the time on UD.
