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.
