- 🧩 Personalization Improvements

Over the last week, we've had some issues with content moderation and pairing members together who wouldn't have a chat that was fun, safe, or engaging.

We've now fixed these issues, and personalization should be back to working as it should - amazingly!

We want to make sure that You can get ahold of us when You discover new content moderation issues on Itsme so that we can respond quickly to address those concerns. The best way to let us know about content moderation issues on Itsme is by emailing us: safety@itsme.cool.

Happy Chatting! 🌈

🔎 Meet Search!!

Search is a totally new way to explore the World and find the perfect people to chat with right now!

🧩 It’s Me: When you find others through search, the first thing You see about them is their Avatar, their bio, and their relevant interests. How they choose to express themselves, not how the camera sees them.

⚡️ It’s Fast: People aren’t just ranked by relevance, but also by how fast they’ll respond to you. It’s designed to let You instantly chat with someone about anything You want.

🦸‍♀️ It’s Safe: You’ll be able to find personalized friends, and just within Your age group. The same great content moderation that powers the rest of Itsme, powers Search as well.

🗺 It’s Global: You can search the global Itsme community, a new language You want to learn, or even something You thought only You cared about. It’s all in Your hands.

🆕 It’s New: Search is early! Search is an awesome new way to explore the Itsme network, but It’s just a v1. Over time, we’ll make It even more powerful, start to surface trends, and expand the possibilities of what You can Search for.

🆙 Update to the latest version of Itsme to check it out!
