Tagged.com settles with NY, Texas in invite fight
(AP) -- The social networking site Tagged.com has adopted reforms on the use of invitation e-mails after an attorney general alleged that the Web site essentially stole the identities of some 60 million Internet users.
On Monday, the company said it voluntarily proposed reforms and is "thrilled" the dispute is over.
Cuomo said Tagged won't access contacts or send messages without members' informed permission. It also will provide clear and conspicuous disclosures.
Tagged will pay $500,000 in penalties and costs to New York. The site also reached an agreement with Texas, although terms of that settlement were not immediately available.
