  • Folksonomy: Definition ❖ Folksonomy is the result of personal free tagging of pages and objects for one's own retrieval ❖ The tagging is usually done in a social environment (shared and open to others) ❖ The act of tagging is done by the person consuming the information InfoCloud Solutions, Inc. - 2010
  • Folksonomy:Value The value in this external tagging is derived from people using their own vocabulary and adding explicit meaning, which may meaning come from inferred understanding of the information/object. People are not so much categorizing, as providing a means to connect items (placing hooks) to provide their meaning in their own understanding. InfoCloud Solutions, Inc. - 2010
