Tagged

Tagged is a social network designed for meeting new people. The company was founded in October 2004 by Greg Tseng and Johann Schleier-Smith. While other social networks focus on existing relationships, Tagged has established the category of social discovery.

Tagged has over 300 million members in 220 countries. The company’s service is designed to enable anyone to meet and socialize with new people through social games, customized profiles, virtual gifts, advanced browsing features and more.

Co-founders Greg and Johann met at Harvard and after moving to California to pursue their PhDs at Stanford, they took a leave of absence to focus full-time on Tagged.

Tagged was originally a teen-only social network and opened up to all ages 13+ in October 2006.The company pivoted to its current social discovery focus in late-2007 and has been profitable since 2008.
