Thing 13: Tagging

Tagging allows users to associate keywords with online content (web pages, pictures & posts). Tagging is completely unstructured — allowing users to create connections between data anyway they want.

Tags are like subject headings; however, there is no thesaurus or authority control. Users assign the tags that are meaningful to them. This sounds like chaos to most librarians; however, it actually works well in the web environment. Most of my tags for this project are 2.o and the name of the ‘thing’.
