Technically, Social Discovery
Unlike traditional social networking companies, Tagged is about more than keeping in touch with your real life friends — it’s about making new friends. So technically, it’s not social networking, it’s social discovery.
Of course, building products that scale to millions upon millions of users is no small task. There is a huge amount of infrastructure involved in powering this endeavor, from storage to servers, networking and management. So this blog is also about technically, how we handle social discovery on a global scale.
Finally, Tagged is also about a talented, dedicated, enthusiastic group of developers who are constantly innovating, trying new technologies and ideas, and dealing with the daily mission of serving billions of page views a month. We learn from others and we learn from each other. This blog is our attempt to share some of the things that we are discovering with you. Enjoy.
Tagged makes social discovery products that enable anyone to meet and socialize with new people. Our mission is to help everyone feel love and belonging, and we're building toward a vision where anyone can use a device to instantly connect with interesting new people anytime, anywhere.
Founded in 2004 and profitable since 2008, Tagged is a market leader in social discovery with over 300 million registered members in 220 countries who make over 100 million new social connections every month. Tagged is based in San Francisco.
