The rise of tagging

In part 3 of Sifry’s review of the blogosphere, he reviews tagging, which really started taking off at the beginning of the year. Key points:

  • one third of posts are tagged
  • about 12000 new tags are created daily, espeically in languages other than English.

    I’m expecting the former number to increase and the latter to decrease slowly. There’s a nice animation video showign the growth of the tags.

    The review of spam blogs was promised next; still waiting. Definitely interested in how those are being tackled.
