30 Minute Session: Tagging

It seems like everywhere you go on the Internet today someone is asking you to tag things. This session will discuss the philosophy behind the tagging and compare it to the older methods of taxonomies and controlled vocabularies, how and why it works, strategies to help you tag more effectively, and the power of collaborative tagging. This session is targeted for people just getting started with social networking software, and is designed to get you off to a good start, and to help you avoid the most common pitfalls. (For all Extension)
