TagWorld--now with commerce

PHOENIX--Who knew that a world of young people would propel MySpace into the phenom it has become? The site's success has left the rest of the world scrambling to catch up, but the game isn't over yet. A new entry into the personal site space is TagWorld. It's based on "tagging": Users can tag other users, sites, media and so on. Designing pages is highly interactive. Users can just drag items around on the page to create their own designs.

I wrote a column on TagWorld for Release 1.0. New for Demo is the tag-based classified service. It handles payments, too, via PayPal, so users will be able to quickly sell goods--assuming the network gets big enough. TagWorld now has 700,000 users.
