Benefit 6: Augmenting Existing Classification Efforts

If you already maintain a navigation system for your website or a taxonomy for your intranet, tagging can be a way to augment your existing systems. Tagging can complement your current classification practices by helping you to understand how users describe resources.

The tags then can be migrated into more formal classification schemes, such as a taxonomy or controlled vocabulary.
