On contexts and tagging for social navigation

"The information we will concentrate on are tags for categorizing web resources. This metadata does not only provide semantic information about a resource, but even more important gives clues about people acting in similar ways. That is, adding similar metadata to the same resources. Or: talking about the same topics with similar words. Bringing together people that act and talk similarly corresponds to the idea of merging people's individual contexts to a shared group context. Such shared group contexts provide the basis for recommendation of resources - one aspect of social navigation."
