In a 2009 redesign, hi5 added a number of features oriented toward gaming and entertainment.
At hi5, users can create an online profile in order to show information such as interests, age and hometown.
Users can also upload photos and create personal photo albums where other users can post comments.
Users can also send friend requests via e-mail to other users.
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.
If the user accepts another user as a friend, the two will be connected directly or in the 1st degree.
The two wanted to establish a commanding presence among users ages 13 to 19 by offering networking services slightly different than those found on other online community sites.
Rather than simply help people reiterate their offline social groups, Tagged was designed to help users meet lots of new people with similar interests in a short amount of time.
As of October 2011, Tagged had 150 employees, an increase from 55 employees at the beginning of 2011.
CEO Greg Tseng continues to interview employees, cater lunch and dinner, and hold office-wide meetings every Friday.
