Basic introduction to Social tagging features in SharePoint 2010

A tag is a word or phrase that identifies an individual piece of information according to a set of attributes or criteria. Tags make it easy to find and share information about a specific subject or task.

Social tagging helps users categorize information in ways that are meaningful to them. Social tagging can improve the quality of search results by filtering against specific tags, and it can also connect individuals who want to share information with other users who have like interests.

SharePoint Server 2010 contains the following social tagging features:

* Social tags, which enable users to save items of interest, organize all information for a project, and connect to others who share their interests.

* The Note Board, which enables users to add comments about Web pages, documents, and library items to be tracked in a central location.

* Ratings, which are social tags that allow users to assess the value of content against a scale, for example, one through five stars.

* Bookmarklets, which enable users to add tags and notes to pages that are outside a SharePoint environment. For example, if users add tags to a page on an Internet Web site, those tags and notes can appear on the Tags and Notes tab of their My Site Web site.

Social tags, the Note Board, and ratings are controlled by the Use Social Features permission of the User Profile service.

Social tags
Social tags are user-generated words or phrases that describe pieces of information. They are not part of a formal taxonomy, such as the enterprise keywords in the term store associated with a Managed Metadata service application in SharePoint Server, or the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) codes used in medicine to represent specific diagnoses. Users create social tags based on their subjective experience with a specific piece of information.

Social tags consist of a user identity, an item URL, and the tag itself. Social tags are stored in the social tagging database that is part of the User Profile service. By default, all authenticated users can add social tags to documents and other SharePoint items. Anyone with the Manage Social Data permission can delete a tag.
