Mobile Ts :: Blog :: Technology-focussed

May 11, 2007

Just an observation - the tag cloud is very technology focussed and people's interests only seem to link up on technologies.  I've just added some key words and the only one that linked was communication. Am hoping that there are people out there who are interested in education and students!

  1. Hi Sue - you are right, our cloud is pretty app focused, especially the front page cloud. The site cloud (which you can get to by clicking the word Tag Cloud in the site header or just by going to http://emerge.elgg.org/search/tags.php) is a bit more diverse. There are some references to learning on there! Tagging is one of those things that will develop around the site and it's members - I know I tend to check out peoples interests and think, ah! I missed that one - how did that person tag it? and then add it to my own list. As groups emerge I'm guessing group tag conventions or interests will as well.

  2. I am curious Josie (given that I am leading a project using elgg for social networking;-) ) - what is the difference between the front page tag cloud and the site cloud?

    Anyway, let's keep tagging.

  3. The full tag cloud is all tags in the system - the front page just pulls out the most popular 15.
