ModelVP Introduces Spam-Free Messaging for Fashion Models

With a focus on improving the way industry professionals contact models about job opportunities, ModelVP announced the release of its latest software iteration this morning. In its latest update, ModelVP introduces spam-free messaging to its Facebook fashion portfolio-viewing application. Using a pre-screening application process, and crowd-sourced spam detection, ModelVP seeks to reduce the proliferation of spam which has traditionally troubled competitor sites such as ModelMayhem.

"While a major goal is to help create job opportunities and relationships, we want to ensure we maintain the privacy and professionalism of any models whom represent themselves on ModelVP," said Paul Vazquez, ModelVP co-founder and CEO. "Accordingly, we review the professional background of those trying to reach out to models."

Launching its beta release in July 2012, ModelVP was created to provide a platform for professional and aspiring models to expand their networks and increase their exposure through social media. While initially the application focused on the sleek, visual presentation of the models' portfolios, today's iteration allows industry professionals to contact models directly if interested in working together. To protect models from spam and potential scams, ModelVP requires all users to pass a pre-approval process before being allowed to contact a model. While this update includes additional enhancements to photo-sizing and load speed, there is much more that ModelVP's developers are working on for the coming months.

When asked about the company's youth and steady growth, Vazquez shares his eager anticipation. "The goal is to be the best social modeling network in the world," he explains. "Our developers are already working on our next iteration, and our company has no plan for a 'final product.' Innovation has no finish line."
