What is Tagg.in?

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.

What is Taggtivity?
Taggtivity is the activity that you do in Tagg! - If you click on Taggtivity link on the top menu, you would see the activity of sms blogs that you are subscribed to (and your posts too) in a latest-post-on-top arrangement - It is an easy way to see what your fellow Taggers are saying. 
How can I use Tagg.in?

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

I sent SMS to 92234 92234 but nothing happened. What do I do?

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)

* Write to us (mailto:contact@tagg.in) - tell us as much as you can about the mishap – mobile number used to       send, time (and date) when this was happening.
Please note:

* 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]
