Why Do Tagging Systems Work?
Web-based social tagging systems such as Del.icio.us and Flickr allow participants to annotate a particular resource, such as a web page or an image, with a freely chosen set of keywords ('tags'). As tagging systems grow in scale and popularity, new challenges must be addressed in their design and affordances.
