Tagged was created in 2004 by two entrepreneurs: Greg Tseng and Johann Schleier-Smith. They wanted to create a "Yahoo!" for teens, or maybe even the next MTV. It has over 300 million registered users combined with sister brand Hi5 under parent group "The Meet Group". The purpose of the social networking service is to connect people for the purpose of friendship or dating.
Tagged is widely commended for continuously growing and not dying out during the rise of Facebook.
