In order to improve the performance of Folksonomy, the authors study how to find out the relations between Tags. A method of mining semantic relations, based on the folk-tagging and extensions of concepts, is proposed in this paper. An experiment on the data set of is also conducted, and it indicates that the method is practicable, but more improvement is needed.
