Tagged is a rapidly expanding social networking site based in San Francisco. As a start-up, Tagged received $7 million in venture capital from the Mayfield Fund and has since produced impressive revenue gains.
Tagged.com’s growth can be attributed to a variety of factors. The company was established with the goal of creating innovative applications. Tagged began at the right time, an incredibly prosperous period for all online social networking sites. What sets Tagged apart from other web-based social networks such as MySpace and Facebook are the vast connection and expression options available to its members. Tagged allows users to exchange multiple media file formats, from music to video, in addition to providing real-time chat forums and highly specified filtering options for searches.
In July of 2007, Tagged teamed up with Razz, Inc. to provide members with a combination of both company’s products. With this merger, Tagged users gained access to Razz Tones and Razz ShoutOuts, personalized voice ringtones that Tagged members can use on their personal accounts. In March of 2008, Microsoft announced a commercial partnership with Tagged, laying the foundation for the site’s expansion. These partnerships make it possible for Tagged.com to provide its users with unique and groundbreaking approaches to social networking.
Since 2009, Tagged.com has ranked among the 150 most-visited websites worldwide by Alexa ranking. Tagged is visited monthly by 6 million in the United States and 25 million users worldwide. Experian Hitwise data also shows that while Facebook drove category growth in 2009, Tagged was the only other social networking site to grow in market share that year, with an increase in its overall share of 47 percent. Tagged continues to post revenue gains and attract new members, a trend that shows no indication of changing. To learn more about Tagged, visit www.tagged.com.
