Folksonomies - Cooperative Classification and Communication Through Shared Metadata - 0 views

  • A user on Flickr, Andrew Lowosky, began posting pictures of doorbells in Florence, along with a brief piece of fiction about the doorbell in the description of the photograph. He dubbed this combination of photograph and short story “flicktion,” and tagged it as such. (Lowosky, 2004.) Some other users have been tagging photographs with “flicktion” and writing short fiction to accompany it

      Interesting use of tags.
  • the most used tags are more likely to be used by other users since they are more likely to be seen

      That's our idea, isn't it? Providing more tags that will be useful for individual use and for the group.
  • A folksonomy represents simultaneously some of the best and worst in the organization of information. Its uncontrolled nature is fundamentally chaotic, suffers from problems of imprecision and ambiguity that well developed controlled vocabularies and name authorities effectively ameliorate. Conversely, systems employing free-‍form tagging that are encouraging users to organize information in their own ways are supremely responsive to user needs and vocabularies, and involve the users of information actively in the organizational system. Overall, transforming the creation of explicit metadata for resources from an isolated, professional activity into a shared, communicative activity by users is an important development that should be explored and considered for future systems development.

      imprecision and ambiguity x free-form tagging - user-generated communicative activity. We should see how our community semantic building evolves.

    reference from Folksonomies: Tidying up Tags?

    Thanks, Paul, for bookmarking this site. Interesting reading that points out to what we've been experiencing, the strengths and weakenesses of folksonomies. If we learn about them, we can try to minimize a bit ambiguity problems in tagging, though they will always be there!
