Has anyone started working on a method for tagging of Ning network content? Specifically:
- Tagging (in retro) of existing content by pre-defined taxonomy
- Tagging of future content when published through drop-down menu and/or predictive text (with pre-defined taxonomy as categories to choose from) (similar solution to Zemanta, Open Calais, or Tagaroo on WordPress?)
- Publishing of content based on assigned categories/tags for the purposes of personalizing the user experience (e.g. recommended content, content for subscriptions based on user-defined profile tags and interests, etc.)
I'm looking for semantic API, AJAX, Java, etc. solutions to add to the Ning platform that could do one or more of the above-mentioned...Many semantic solutions out there but wondering if anyone has started to build or implement a similar solution for their network?
Well, I am sort of using categories and tags interchangeably...I am looking for a solution that will allow me to choose a taxonomy for the users to standardize the tags across the site's content to make content on the network more discoverable.
I've noticed that people will add a tag, eg. "social media," but spell it differently or use a different version, eg. "socmed," "sm," "social media," "socialmedia," "scoialmed", etc.
I'm also interested in exploring this. It would make such a huge impact on the site and increase navigation and discoverability tremendously. It seems odd, it's not avalable as a basic function in some ways. Does anyone have any ideas - maybe NING could add it to their product roadmap?
I've been working on a list of commonly used (or preferred) tags on my network, but it's a manual update kind of thing, not something that's automatic.
Thanks for posting the link to the page on my site that is a possible partial solution to this problem.
