Social jargon: Folksonomy

Folksonomy. A classification scheme that uses wisdom of crowd rather than experts to parse content. The idea of a folksonomy is closely related to tagging. It’s a folksonomy if you’re doing it on a social site like flickr or Technorati. Otherwise, you could just dub it tagsonomy.
