Article: Almost 30 percent of Internet users tag online

Quoting the IDG News Service article:
Among U.S. Internet users, 28 percent have tagged online content like blog entries, photos, Web sites, video clips, and news articles, The Pew Internet & American Life Project reports in a study released Wednesday. On any particular day, 7 percent of users engage in this activity to categorize and label material they upload or find on the Web.
As I said in the article, there are still many people who don't understand what tagging is, even if they are doing it. However, I know that as more people become more familiar with tagging, they will also become more familiar with searching using tags, including searching the collections that are being digitized and catalogued using metadata.
