Sign Up

Signing up is so easy for Tagged. You just register an email address. Upon registration, they will send a PIN code and a link for verification. You either click the link and be redirected to the website or you can put the PIN on your registration tab. Please check the spam folder as it can be tagged as spam by your email filters.

You can also link your Facebook account for faster registration. The process is just the same for both the app and the website.

Once logged in, they will ask you to upload a profile picture and curate your profile. They will ask for your location, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and relationship status. Don’t worry, you can leave certain fields as blank – remember though that the more information you provide, the better the basis for customized matching.

Features

When you are in the home section of the website, there will be suggestions on who you might want to meet. You can start chatting with them once they have liked you back.

You can modify the filters so you can see the posts of people within your desired country, distance, age, and gender. You can like and comment on these posts. And of course, you can send them private messages.

Tagged lets you chat in real time with other people. It also offers a wide array of groups for discussion of a huge variety of subjects. If you can’t find one that you like, you can always create a new group and be in the company of your people.

Looking a lot like Facebook on the website and the popular “swipe right if you like” on the app, it wouldn’t take you too much to understand and explore Tagged on both platforms. Originally meant for kids 13 and older, Tagged has updated its terms since 2014. Users must be 18 years of age or older to have an account.

Membership

Although a lot of features are free, Tagged VIPs have access to premium feature such as seeing who liked you or visited your profile. They offer three packages for their premium accounts.

  • 1-month package starts at $9.99
  • 3-month package starts at $20.99
  • 6-month package starts at $29.99
  • 12-month package starts at $47.99

Interesting Information

Back in 2007, it was reported to be second largest social media site right behind MySpace. Let’s just say that a lot has changed since.

One of the features that make this website unique is that you can buy people as pets and other people can buy them from you thus increasing the pet’s value. It is a game – not quite sure how this is enjoyable at 2019. But hey, almost everyone played some permutation of this type of game in Facebook back in 2008. So, yeah, maybe it has an appeal somewhat to people?

Tagged is a member of the Social Media Advertising Consortium, a trade industry association that aims to increase advertising revenue and to facilitate collaboration among social networking sites, advertisers, and marketing researchers.

In 2011, Tagged acquired hi5, a social networking site based in California.

Bottom Line

Tagged has a lot to offer to its users. Do you want to play social games while meeting other people? How about talking to people on the other side of the world real-time? If your answer is yes, you should definitely consider signing up. It will not take you a while to adjust to the Tagged’s interface. It looks a lot like Facebook after all. 

It is entertaining and effective. You get to know other people around you or from all over the world while having fun. With over 100 million users worldwide, a third of which are active monthly, will Tagged be the right one for you?
