Tagg.in is an easy way to stay in touch with your friends through FREE sms & groups (We like to call them SMS blogs). You CREATE your own group and invite people to JOIN your group. Now whenever your post an update on your sms blog (group), Tagg.in sends it to all your subscribers (people who have joined your group)
A SMS Blog is a group or a live community on tagg.in which could be used for microblogging (life streaming), sharing info on some specific area of interest, or spreading the word on an event / activity streaming.
There are two kinds of SMS Blogs: public and private.
By default, all kinds of SMS Blogs are public and posts are visible to everyone. Only you can post though.
In a private SMS Blog, your posts are visible only to those who you allow to subscribe to your SMS Blog.
If you have joined some sms blogs, you would receive updates from them whenever those sms blogs are updated.
All sms are to be sent to the Tagg number 09223492234 or 560700. We encourage you to save this number on your phone for easy & quick actions.
Tagg.in can be used in various different forms, sending latest updates like breaking news alerts, stock tips, sports updates - Or just keeping in touch with different groups - College friends, same interest groups or just updates like PJs, quotes & shayaris – it could be whatever you want it to be!
It becomes both economically effective & time saving when you just send a single SMS and it gets posted to all your group members

When you receive/see a good message, what is the best thing to do?
Share…Whatever your post would be sent to your subscribers, so when you see a good post by someone else just press the share button and it will be posted as your ‘shared post’
When you see an Icon next to a post on web [((shares)) on http://m.tagg.in], or receive SMS from tagg.in with (sh) in the beginning, it is a post that has been shared. The group which originally posted can be seen on the top right corner of that post. The number next to the share box represents the number of ppl that shared a particular post.
If you have already used tagg.in before through cell by SMS (JOIN, CREATE, etc), then, in order to login you would need to register on tagg.in using the following link http://www.tagg.in/MobileLogin.php
This link is also visible on the home page of tagg.in under the login box as
“I was using thru mobile, now register me”
Yes, these details can be changed under settings link after logging to www.tagg.in
We have a Do Not Disturb list and you can submit your number to that list either by clicking on http://tagg.in/dnd.php and you would not be sent any SMS from Tagg.in (unless you activate your number again)
You can also subscribe to our DND list through 1 sms by sending
DNDON to 92234 92234
To switch DND off (and start receiving messages again), send
Relax. Sometimes, the messages get lost somewhere between your mobile and our servers and thus you see no action happening – this may happen due to multiple reasons. We would suggest you try again after some time (say, about 15-20 mins). In case this happens a bit too often, following are a few suggestions that we make:
* Try sending the post to 560700 instead of 09223492234. 560700 is a more stable number and often works even when the other number might not.
* Try posting through our other available options – web (www.tagg.in) ; mobile web (http://m.tagg.in)
* You may be charged for sending SMS to 92234 92234 as per the charges levied by your operator [charges for sending sms to 560700 vary between INR 1-3]If you have further questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
