Peters, Isabella and Kipp, Margaret E. I. and Heck, Tamara and Gwizdka, Jacek and Lu, Kun and Neal, Diane Rasmussen and Spiteri, Louise (2011) Social tagging & folksonomies: Indexing, retrieving...and beyond? In: ASIST 2011: Association for Information Science and Technology Annual Meeting, 9-12 Oct 2011, New Orleans, United States.


The purpose of this panel is to look back on seven years of research on folksonomies and tagging systems and to summarize its main contributions as well as to try forecasting the evolution folksonomies will make in the future. Research findings which show the advantages and drawbacks of folksonomies and tagging systems in various scenarios and which may reduce the reluctance of the professional side will be presented. Additionally, the panellists and audience will discuss the new breed of 'folksonomies' formed by hashtags, geo-tags, system-tags etc. in order to find the best definitions for folksonomies and folksonomy-like structures.
