Online => Delicious Offline => Library Records

Folksonomy => Folk + Taxonomy

Folks => Done by people

Taxonomy => Classification of item into groups

Tagging in Folksonomy TAG Tag is simply a freely chosen set of textual keywords. Tags not created but specialists and created by users Tag can be categorized with any word that defines a relationship between the online resource and a concept in the user's mind Any number of words might be chosen, some of which are obvious representations, others making less sense outside the tag author's context.

Visualizing Folksonomy Tag cloud – Way to visualize tag in a Folksonomy. Tag clouds represents by size, number of times the tag applied to single item and quality of content. Tag clouds are interactive Tags are hyperlinks thus allows users to drill down on the data. Delicious is the first bookmarking site to introduce tagging concept.

Folksonomy and Semantic Web Folksonomy intended to make a body of information increasingly easy to search, discover, and navigate over time Folksonomy hold a key in developing semantic web and information retrieval system. Web content searchable through machine readable meta datas. Not sure every web authors have added metadata in their pages. Time consuming to learn and use How SE Categorize content in WEB <meta name=&quot;keywords&quot; content=&quot;computing, computer software, computer&quot;> <meta name=&quot;description&quot; content=&quot;Cheap widgets for sale&quot;> <meta name=&quot;author&quot; content=“Mercy Livingstone&quot;>

Conclusion Web is infinite, can’t rely on experts to classify things Its upto end users to contribute Single tag is not going to speak the language. The number of increase in tag that matters. Ex. Flickr Some extend taxonomy also can’t be ruled out. Ex. Library Catalogue. We have to capitalize on the benefits of both the systems. University of Pennsylvania adopted Penn Tagg Beyond the partnership with Taxonomy, Folksonomy moves forward in future classifying web towards creating semantic web.
