We present a semantic imitation model of social tagging and exploratory search based on theories of cognitive science. [...] Key Result The current results highlight the critical role of human semantic representations and interpretation processes in the analysis of large-scale social information systems. The model implies that analysis at both the individual and social levels are important for understanding the active, dynamic processes between human knowledge structures and external folksonomies.Expand
Implicit imitation in social tagging: familiarity and semantic reconstruction
TLDR
This paper examines some of the cognitive mechanisms assumed to underlie sensemaking, namely social imitation, and assumes that implicit processing can be understood as a semantic reconstruction of gist.
Priming Effects and Strategic Influences in Social Tagging
TLDR
Light is shed on the conditions and mechanisms through which existing tags influence subsequent tagging behavior, and it is demonstrated that there is a meaningful difference in the tag sets that are created under the influence of strategic choice.
Verbatim and Semantic Imitation in Indexing Resources on the Web: A Fuzzy-trace Account of Social Tagging
Summary Social tagging is a widespread phenomenon on the Web allowing users to tag resources, such as photos, by freely chosen labels. Imitation of other users' tagging behavior is deemed to
Reconceptualizing imitation in social tagging: a reflective search model of human web interaction
TLDR
It is claimed that shifting away from imitation to reflective search holds great potential for understanding and designing human web interaction more generally, and to validate models of human memory in large-scale web environments.
Semantic stability in social tagging streams
TLDR
The results show that tagging streams which are generated by a combination of imitation dynamics and shared background knowledge exhibit faster and higher semantic stability than tagging streamsWhich are generated via imitation dynamics or natural language phenomena alone.
Semantic Stability and Implicit Consensus in Social Tagging Streams
TLDR
Tagging streams that are generated by a combination of imitation dynamics and shared background knowledge exhibit faster and higher semantic stability than tagging streams that were generated via imitation dynamics or natural language phenomena alone.
Modeling Consensus Semantics in Social Tagging Systems
TLDR
A random walk and spreading activation like model to represent the semantics of tags using semantics of unpopular tags is introduced and is compared to the classic Latent Semantic Analysis approach in a concept clustering task to show that the proposed model can properly capture the semantics.
Recommending tags with a model of human categorization
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a theoretically guided design of algorithms not only holds potential for improving existing recommendation mechanisms, but it also allows us to derive more generalizable insights about how human information interaction on the Web is determined by both semantic and verbal processes.
The Informational Value of Social Tagging Networks
Social tagging is a new way to share and categorize online content that enables users to express their thoughts, perceptions, and feelings with respect to diverse concepts. In social tagging, content
The Influence of Frequency, Recency and Semantic Context on the Reuse of Tags in Social Tagging Systems
TLDR
The extent to which each factor individually influences tag reuse strongly depends on the type of folksonomy present in a social tagging system, which can serve as guideline for researchers and developers of tag-based recommender systems when designing algorithms for social tagging environments.

A Semantic Imitation Model of Social Tag Choices
TLDR
A semantic imitation model of social tagging that integrates formal representations of semantics and a stochastic tag choice process to explain and predict emergent behavioral patterns and demonstrates the weaknesses of single-level analyses.
The microstructures of social tagging: a rational model
  • W. Fu

TLDR
A rational model developed under the distributed cognition framework that explains how social tags influence knowledge acquisition and adaptation in exploratory ill-defined information tasks and shows that aggregate regularities can be explained by microstructures of behavior that emerged from the adaptive assimilation of concepts and categories of multiple users through the social tagging system.
Semiotic dynamics and collaborative tagging
TLDR
A stochastic model of user behavior embodying two main aspects of collaborative tagging, a frequency-bias mechanism related to the idea that users are exposed to each other's tagging activity and a notion of memory, or aging of resources, in the form of a heavy-tailed access to the past state of the system.
Facilitating exploratory search by model-based navigational cues
TLDR
It is found that search performance can be significantly improved by these model-based presentations of navigational cues for both experts and novices, and suggested that exploratory search performance depends critically on the match between internal knowledge and external knowledge structures.
Collaborative Tagging and Semiotic Dynamics
TLDR
A stochastic model of user behavior embodying two main aspects of collaborative tagging: a frequency-bias mechanism related to the idea that users are exposed to each other's tagging activity and a notion of memory - or aging of resources - in the form of a heavy-tailed access to the past state of the system.
Facilitating Knowledge Exploration in Folksonomies: Expertise Ranking by Link and Semantic Structures
  • W. Fu, W. Dong
  • Computer Science

  • 2010
TLDR
It is argued that to facilitate knowledge exploration in social tagging systems, it is important to keep a good balance between helping user to follow hot topics and to discover cold topics by including expertise rankings generated by both link and semantic structures.
The complex dynamics of collaborative tagging
TLDR
A generative model of collaborative tagging is produced in order to understand the basic dynamics behind tagging, including how a power law distribution of tags could arise and how tag co-occurrence networks for a sample domain of tags can be used to analyze the meaning of particular tags given their relationship to other tags.
Harnessing Web 2.0 for context-aware learning: The impact of social tagging system on knowledge adaption
We present an empirical study investigating how interactions with a popular social tagging system, called del.icio.us, may directly impact knowledge adaptation through the processes of concept
Social tagging roles: publishers, evangelists, leaders
TLDR
The concept of social roles are employed to describe audience-oriented tagging, including roles of community-seeker, community-builder, evangelist, publisher, and team-leader, to contribute to the understanding of the motivations and rationales behind social tagging in an international company.
Exploratory information search by domain experts and novices
TLDR
Results from an experiment comparing search behavior of experts and novices when they searched using a tradition search engine and a social tagging system showed that experts relied more on their own domain knowledge to generate search queries, whileNovices were influenced more by social cues in the social tagged system.
