Abstract

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.
