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 del.idio.us.com 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.
