Tagging: A Social Phenomenon

Here's a useful overview on "tagging": Write Technology: Tag, you're it!

According to Wikipedia, "A tag is a (relevant) keyword or term associated with or assigned to a piece of information (like picture, article, or video clip), thus describing the item and enabling keyword-based classification of information it is applied to."

In her post, Michelle Lentz defines Folksonomy (wiki), and offers examples of "tagging in the real world", via Amazon, Technorati, Flickr, and del.icio.us.  She also mentions using del.icio.us as a promotional tool (see her del.icio.us/wrtgirl), which I am experimenting with as well (see del.icio.us/ScrapbookingIndustry and del.icio.us/ScrapbookMarketing)
