From the crowd to communities: New interfaces for social tagging
Social tagging is intimately linked to ‘tag cloud’, the visualization apparatus which is intended to bring the ‘wisdom of crowds’. But what is suited for the ‘crowd’ may be not for communities. In this article, we propose a new interface for social tagging in collaborative systems that includes several improvements: multi-viewpoints, multi-tags selection, and tags relations. We illustrate this apparatus on the collaborative analysis of a scientific archive.
