TECH CRUNCH - Sep 3 - Back in 2005 Tagged was a teenager-only social network. By 2007 they were profitable and worth ~$100M. Facebook started letting high school students in, and then everyone else. Tagged responded by opening up to everyone and became just another social network. CEO Greg Tseng decided to reach out to users and ask them what they wanted. “People were using our site to meet new people.” Dating is obviously a big part of this. Facebook doesn’t have dating profiles. Going to Tagged is like going to a bar with friends. Going to Match.com is like going to a singles event, and there’s a stigma with that.” Users definitely agree. In 2007 Tagged had 20M active users. Today they’ve hit 100M. 1/3 to 1/4 visit the site each month and the site has 5 billion monthly page views. Revenue has grown to $30+ M. FULL ARTICLE @ TECH CRUNCH
