Metadata Creation in Socio-semantic Tagging Systems: Towards Holistic Knowledge Creation and Interchange
Fuzzzy.com, a social bookmarking website has been developed to study collaborative creation of semantics. In a shared online space, users of Fuzzzy continuously create metadata bottom-up by categorizing (tagging) favourite hyperlinks (bookmarks). The semantic network of tags created by users evolves into a people’s fuzzy common ontology (“folktology”). We discuss several social and cognitive aspects of Topic Maps technology and scalability by analyzing the use of the system. We further argue that holistic knowledge creation and interchange is highly needed. Our results from Fuzzzy suggest that this can be realized by connecting distributed knowledge centric communities of dedicated users within specific domains.
