One response to “Metadata: Information and it’s wonders

  1. this blog Illustrates how folksonomy was combined by the two words folk and taxonomy in managing tags. I agree with this method. this is also call metadata where user can create their own tags for memorizing their photos or pages they visited online. These tags can also be search by other users who’s looking for the similarity info. Tags are created by keywords that users use to label their content so they memorize or revisit a site online.

    With the method of metadata information can be search for in a faster way by tagging them to words user will remember them by. Tags increase their font to a large one because of the many times user used that same tag. In the article it mentions the website flickr a social network that has metadata. The list of tags on flickr can get user find information faster by the help of other user’s tags.
