Technically, Social Discovery
Unlike traditional social networks, 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 a site that scales 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.
