Why it’s important to greet people
When people enter a room it’s important to acknowledge them and make them feel welcome. We all make judgements from our first impressions and we are deciding in the first couple seconds if the room is worth spending time at. In IMVU you can’t tell if people are awake and want to talk or dance with you from the body language the way you can in real life, that’s why its not just politeness but a necessity to greet people.
It also tells them who’s in charge or who to start talking to first. It also helps the other people in the room because when you’re immersed in a conversation it can be easy to overlook someone coming in. So there are a lot of good reasons to greet people and it’s just part of good IMVU manners. It helps make the room inviting and remember its the people that make the room and this is part of that.
