What are Tags?
A tag is like a label or a sticker. Add a tag to Profiles as internal markers of a specific status or with a certain source. Tag can be added or removed – not updated like Attributes
Tags, themselves, do not contain data. Attributes can be understood as being something like "type of data = data" (gender = female) while Tags are more like "Label = yes / no" (either Tag is applied or it isn't).
Tags are applied manually, during a file import or via a marketing automation flow. Attributes, on the contrary, gather the data automatically and feed it into the Profile. In order for a Profile to have a Tag, a user must apply the Tag. Alternatively, if a file containing Profile data is uploaded, they can be Tagged in advance.
