Emma Active is a new startup company that is taking the Internet "tagging" phenomenon to a whole new level. Emma Active works by signing up third-party sites to become "Emma Active." "Emma Active" sites can then have their images tagged by Emma Active users. Users tag the products in the images with a description and an appropriate URL.

The best part about Emma Active is that it pays taggers and host sites every time a tag is clicked. This provides incentives for sites to sign up and should be seen as a godsend for everyone from fashion designers to tech companies, as it provides an opportunity for a ton of free advertising. The service is currently in beta testing and is free to use for the time being. Stats for Promotional Photo-Tagging Trending: Older & Mild
