In January 2015, IMVU acquired Fur Affinity, a furry fandom art gallery.

IMVU contains its own economy with a currency system based on IMVU "credits" and "promo credits".
A third form of currency also exists for creators, known as "developer tokens", which are earned when a user purchases an item with "promo-credits".
Cybersex, also called computer sex, Internet sex, netsex and, colloquially, cyber or cybering, is a virtual sex encounter in which two or more people connected remotely via computer network send each other sexually explicit messages describing a sexual experience.
With relation to a standard free or full member, promo-credits are similar to standard credits.
Cybersex can be utilised to write co-written original fiction and fanfiction by role-playing in third person, in forums or communities usually known by the name of 'A Shared Dream'.Cybersex can occur either within the context of existing or intimate relationships, e.g.among lovers who are geographically separated, or among individuals who have no prior knowledge of one another and meet in virtual spaces or cyberspaces and may even remain anonymous to one another.Promo-credits used to purchase a virtual product are exchanged into "developer tokens", also known as "dev tokens".The purchase transfers the promo-credits into developer tokens but nets a single developer token per purchase when promo-credits are used regardless of the price of the product purchased.Cybersex is commonly performed in Internet chat rooms (such as IRC, talkers or web chats) and on instant messaging systems.
