The Guardian Online blog has an interesting post on folksonomies. Bobbie Johnson argues that as it stands, tagging is too much effort for most people and that they want content to be organised. Well that's a fair point but it does take away some of the joys of being part of a network. If you want to connect with like-minded people then the chances are you will use similar tags or even have your own exclusive networks tag. Part of the attraction of folksonomy is that you choose the category(ies) that you enter. However, I'm sure that soon there will be no need to tag and lazy people will be able to enjoy a watered down version of all that the world wide web has to offer. A good thing for companies trying to make some cash out of this growing trend.
