Tagging isn’t new - it’s been around for a dog’s age in internet years. But in the past few years some fresh ideas and tools have reinvigorated the social tagging world. These new approaches include an attempt to improve findability through a bit of structure and control. While the idea of adding control to folksonomy seems like going against the whole selling point of social tagging (flexibility, openness), it is bringing the tagging to a new level, making it more viable for practical use in enterprises. This session will present hybrid approaches to formal taxonomies and social tagging. How can they be used in the corporate environment? What type of content is appropriate for social tagging? What kind of software is available for the enterprise? Learn how social tagging is not necessarily anathema to corporate taxonomy programs and how this hybrid approach can bring the best of both worlds: a fresh, up to date taxonomy with the structure needed to improve information findability.
Key Takeaways:

Folksonomy and taxonomy defined
Drawbacks of pure social tagging
Social tagging in the enterprise
Hybrid taxonomy & folksonomy approaches: Four models

  • gculpin Gregory Culpin, Evangelist at Knowledge Plaza Interesting slideshow thanks for sharing. Fyi you might want to put Knowledge Plaza (http://www.knowledgeplaza.be) on your radar as it has been providing a mixed taxonomy/folksonomy approach to their information/knowledge management environment for a couple of years now. 4 years ago
