Because my business is almost entirely online, I’m always meeting new people through e-mail and social networks. Eventually, I end up meeting many of these people in real life. I guess that’s becoming more and more normal, but I know that plenty of people are still weirded out by people who meet online. Not the people who use Tagged, which is “social network where the focus is on meeting new people.” The company is based in San Francisco, CA, and they made the Inc. 500 with 637% three-year growth and $22.7 million in revenue. It may not be Facebook, but Tagged has 100 million users and gets 4 million daily unique visitors. By offering features like “social games, friend suggestions, browsing profiles, group interests and much more,” Tagged has created a unique online environment for making new friends. It seems to be paying off for them.
Tagged was started by two best friends who met in 7th grade, and I imagine it’s created lots of new friendships since it launched in 2004. The company has been profitable since 2007, and it probably has to do with their decision to stand out by focusing on introducing new people. To learn more about the business, watch this video interview with Tagged co-founder Greg Tseng (e-mail readers need to click through to see the video).
I should also note that Tagged has a separate corporate site at About-Tagged.com, and it’s truly outstanding—filled with information and beautifully design. If you like what you see at Tagged, you’ll probably also like what you see on their Jobs page. They have a ton of positions posted, and may are suitable for new or recent grads. These include Associate Product Manager, Junior Game Designer, Office/Facilities Assistant, Customer Service Representative, Interaction/Visual Designer, Software Engineer, and Entry Level Systems Administrator. Check out the positions, and if you like what you see, you can meet some new people at Tagged.
