Tagged Named to AlwaysOn's OnHollywood Top 100 List

Leading Social Network Recognized for Technology Innovation in Digital Entertainment

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - Tagged, the third largest social network in the United States, today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as an OnHollywood 100 winner. Inclusion in the OnHollywood 100 signifies leadership among its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched Hollywood entertainment. Tagged was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

"We are honored that AlwaysOn has recognized Tagged as an innovator among social networks," said Greg Tseng, CEO of Tagged. "Tagged is dedicated to being the best place for meeting new people online and our 100 million members worldwide, combined with winning this award, validates our efforts."

The OnHollywood 100 winners were selected from thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and entertainment industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2010 list.

"When you review the OnHollywood 100 class of 2010, you will see that we have come a long way since music sharing sites like Napster and Kazaa began disrupting the entertainment world," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "Now, the entire entertainment world is dependent on the Internet, social networking, and the burgeoning use of the iPhone and Google's Android smartphone platforms to market, distribute, and share entertainment."

Tagged and the OnHollywood 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's fifth annual OnHollywood on September 27th, 2010, at the Entertainment Technology Center @ USC in Los Angeles, CA. A full list of all the AlwaysOn OnHollywood 100 winners can be found on the AlwaysOn website at:
