Title: Longitudinal Analysis of Tag Structure in
Author(s): Guo, Lijiang; Jacob, Elin; George, Nicolas
Subject(s): Tags Tagging Folksonomies Network folksonomies System folksonomies Social bookmarking systems
Abstract: This paper describes a three-level structure of folksonomies that accounts for the aggregation of tags in a social bookmarking system and describes the results of a preliminary longitudinal analysis of user-assigned tags collected from for the period 2005-2007. Results of this analysis indicate that evolving community consensus on the meanings of tags can lead to the emergence of domain vocabularies that can be useful for retrieving domain resources.
