Much more than just a regular chat room, IMVU enables you to create a 3-D avatar and interact with other users in a virtual environment. IMVU boasts over 100 million registered users worldwide, so finding a new friend might seem like a daunting task.

Step 2

Hover your mouse pointer over "Community" at the top of the page. Click "People Search."

Step 3

Scroll down to the "Find a Friend" section.

Step 4

Click the drop-down menu and select "Avatar Name."

Step 5

Enter the avatar name of the person you want to find, and then click "Search." People with matching usernames will appear in the results list.
