Using connotea as a social tagging test bed, the resources and users are analyzed, patterns are discovered to show the broad resource coverage of tags, strong co-occurrence of tags, high tagging activity among active users, low average tags per resource, regular shifts of users’ tagging interests, and high usage of thesauri terms by users in scientific fields. Suggestions are made to improve structural relations among tags, and to increase tagging granularity.
