How Social Is Social Bookmarking?
Proceedings of the IEEE Workshop on Business Applications of Social Networking (BASNA 2010), Bangalore, India, Dec 2010
Social bookmarking services allow a user to make her personal collection of favorite web resources accessible by the public. The content of this collection can attract users of “similar minds” and therefore has tremendous potential to enable networking and collaboration. In this research, we analyzed a large dataset collected from one of the most popular social bookmarking services. To understand why there is a large gap between a user’s explicit network and her implicit user-user association networks based on common resources or common tags, we compared a users’ bookmark resources and tags to those of her explicit network members. Our results suggest that a typical social bookmarking service user does not create her explicit network based on common interests. We discuss the implications behind the gap between a user’s explicit network and implicit network and propose solutions to enhance and improve the “social” functions of social bookmarking services.

Organizing Social Bookmarking Tags Using a Network Analysis Approach
Proceedings of 20th Workshop on Information Technology and Systems (WITS2010)
Social bookmarking tags are generated and shared by web users as online content metadata for different reasons. We believe these reasons can be used to distinguish tags from each other, and thus, can be used to organize the flat tag space into a faceted structure. In this research, we collected a large set of tags from Delicious and empirically analyzed them using a social network analysis approach. Our results show that tags can be organized into a faceted structure and these facets can be derived from the social network analysis.
FASTS: Facets Structured Tag Space – A Novel Approach to Organize and Reuse Social Bookmarking Tags
Proceedings of DESRIST 2010, St. Gallen, in Global Perspectives on Design Science Research Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Volume 6105/2010, pp. 426-438, DOI: 10.1007/978-3-642-13335-0_29, 2010, 2010
Social bookmarking tools are generating an enormous pool of metadata describing and categorizing web resources. The value of these metadata in the form of tags can be fully realized only when they are shared and reused for web search and retrieval. The research described in this paper proposes a facet classification mechanism, and a tag relationship ontology to organize tags into a meaningful and intuitively useful structure. We have implemented a web-based prototype system to effectively search and browse bookmarked web resources using this approach. We collected real tag data from del.icio.us for a wide range of popular domains. We analyzed, processed, and organized these tags to demonstrate the effectiveness and utility of our approach for tag organization and reuse. [more]
