16. Using Folksonomy• A folksonomy is a taxonomy (or set of terms) that arises as a result of people applying their own tags (metadata) to content objects.• People use the tags that make sense to them, so over a period of time as more people tag, the folksonomy becomes more and more appropriate for the audience by associating content objects with the words and concepts people use to think about them.• Unlike metadata terms, keywords aren’t organized into a hierarchy that users select from. Instead, users can enter any value into a keyword field.
17. Why use folksonomy?• The primary value of a folksonomy is that it uses your own vocabulary• May come from your intimate knowledge of a subject• A way to correlate discovered content (through search or social interactions) to your understanding
