Tagxedo is a website that allows users to input phrases, slogans, mottos, themes or any other word combinations, after which the site processes these words into a word cloud. A word cloud, sometimes known as a tag cloud or weighted list, is a visual representation of words and phrases. In addition to being accessed from the Tagxedo website, Tagxedo is also available as a Facebook app.
Tagxedo word clouds can be adjusted to form various different shapes and can include a variety of different fonts. Before generating a word cloud, users must specify the color and orientation of their word clouds. Users are also able to select which words they wish to have a greater weight within the word cloud, which results in these words being featured more predominantly in the finished word cloud.
After Tagxedo outputs a word cloud, it allows users to design clothing, bags, coffee mugs and other items using the word cloud. These items are then available for purchase through Tagxedo's online shop.
Tagxedo also hosts an online gallery of other user's word clouds. During 2010, Tagxedo updated this gallery every day with daily work clouds, but this feature has been inactive since then. Tagxedo now provides users with updates and information releases via social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter.
