  • Because tagging is a very personal procedure14, many users don’t know how to designate sites, which leads to different styles of bookmarking the Web15. Javier Cañadas (2006) suggests four styles of tagging for users:
  • The selfish style. We tag only according to our individual context. Our tags have personal meaning (only for our own benefit), are irrelevant to other users and difficult to place in the social context of the network of users (for example, Oliver, for Tiya, etc. are tags which indicate resources saved for my husband or for my daughter). In time, it is possible that this type of user will classify content under generally accepted, more theme-oriented tags. This doesn’t exclude selfishness, but attributes a certain social utility to tags. The social benefit of such a classification consists in the user’s maturity.

  • The friendly type. We tag for the people we know: friends, colleagues, project partners, etc. This style is typical both for large groups and for small ones. The social benefit is great and the motivation lies in belonging to a group, in the desire to share with others what you know, to contribute to online content.
  • The altruist type. We use tags as general as possible and as many as we can for a resource. We try, using key words, to describe as objectively/realistically as possible the resource that we post, so that it is of interest to the great majority of users of the most popular social bookmarking service. The social benefit is huge because it involves generosity.
  • The popular style. Popular tagging is used in order to get more views. There is absolutely no social benefit. Such tagging is considered spagging = spam+tagging16 (we find resources marked with top10, sex, interesting, etc.). This tagging procedure is considered artificial and is disapproved by the rest of the users because it reflects the tendency of some marketers to get a better position in the lists of results posted by search engines17.
