Abstract

Recently, many user-participating web services have been used widely as the evolution of internet web technology has rapidly been developed. Users share various content and opinion on line using a site like ‘Social bookmarking.’ Users can share others’ bookmarking history and create tags while bookmarking web sites; we call it collaborative tagging. In this paper, we studied empirical analysis for widely used social bookmarking and collaborative tagging which the result shows minority of users is actively using the bookmarking and a few sites and tags are used by majority of the users. 24% users tagged 80%, 75% sites and 81% tags were tagged below than 3 times. Types of bookmarking activities were found different by users and early appointed tags get more frequency by majority. We also identified relative proportions of tags on certain sites are becoming convergence gradually. We expect the result of this paper will give opportunities to help further developing social bookmarking system.
