SharePoint 2010 comes with a bunch of web 2.0 features, tags, tag clouds, rating, social bookmarking and enhanced blogs and wikis. What I really missed in SharePoint 2007 were tags and tag clouds.

On the other hand this was a free space for developers like me, see Power Tag Cloud ;-) My experience with SharePoint 2003 already showed that text, dropdowns and lookup columns are too inflexible and people tend to over categorize in the conception stage.

Managing Metadata in SharePoint 2010

It really should be pointed out that metadata/keyword tagging is a not a web 2.0 feature and wasn't created by the social networking movement. Tagging, in terms of documents or pages within SharePoint, is really more about targeted search against generic content just like the META KEYWORDS item of a standard html web page. Considering that FAST search is an integral part of 2010, and as search gets better and takes on much more powerful lemmatization abilities, targeted key word or metdata searches become much more important to restrict the results.

Does the tag cloud show the tags for items within the site, site collection, web app, farm or multiple farms?

yes tagging is great in SP2010 but the confustion is that the "Tag Cloud" does not sem to work well with the Sp2010 Blog template. One would think you could connect the two and export out the Blog tags to the tagCloud Web Part to surface the info. I have not yet been able to make that work... have you?

I think it is great that SP2010 is adding more Metadata features and tagging. However, in reality the tagging should be automated and transparent for the content creator at the point of creation ? The point of creation will be MS Office Word,Excel,PPT or outlook. For tagging to work in a business enviroment SP2010 needs to integrate Office with Term Store or for more complex taxonomies in larger Enterprise rollouts products like Metapoint from Schemalogic.
If not the tagging and metadata will fail in SP2010 as in other systems because of the failure to understand this is not a technical issue but a business use case problem.
Tagging and structure need to be done at the point of user creation, not in a Sharepoint screen.

Would welcome feedback

Metadata and Taxonomy Management in SharePoint 2010 Overview... I finally got around to reading the preliminary info on MSDN in regards to how SharePoint 2010 will be treating taxonomy and metadata. As most of you know, MOSS 2007 had some serious challenges in this regard that caused IAs like me much cons...

Basically I like the idea of an improved metadata management. But I'm not sure if the users are happy if they have to maintain the metadata. I think there will be some resistance to maintain metadata because of lack of time. I agree with you (George) that the tagging should be at the point of creation. I'm not sure what the original idea is: maintain metadata in MS Office Word, Excel etc and additionally maintain them in SP2010. And how much better will the search result be?

Is there a way to import an external meta tags tree to moss 2010? I was offered to buy tag cloud solution that support this feature for 2007. Is it worth for me to wait for 2010 (hebrew version supposed to be released by june). I have a big meta tags tree from an existing asp.net that i want to use.

Managing Metadata in SharePoint 2010

We're using Sharepoint Fondation 2010 (the free edition of Sharepoint), but I don't see any "Managed Keywords" field when I create pages, nor any Term Store Management.

Is this something only available in other editions of Sharepoint ? I can't believe something so basic as tagging and categorizing is not available right out of the box...

I have been coming to your site for a long time.Managing metadata is something which I haven’t tried before.This can be a good powerpoint presentation. They have done such a great job with it.
