What makes a good tag?

get some tag literacy.

• Think of tags as personal, but also think of tags as social.
• Use plurals to define categories.
• Avoid capitalization, except when capitalization is the norm.
• Think specific, but also think general.
• Be idiosyncratic, but also be generic.
• Group common phrases.
• If you want to be extra-nice, include a couple of synonyms.
• Observe the norms of the network.
• Contribute to maintenance efforts.
