Findability with tags: Facets, clusters, and pivot browsing

“For a while I have been thinking of different ways of supporting finding information with tags that go beyond tag-clouds. There are three trends that are worth pointing out. The first is faceted browse interfaces, the second is algorithm driven approaches like clustering and recommendations (often driven by collaborative filtering), and the third possibility is one that is native to tag based systems – and can be termed ‘pivot browsing’.” (Rashmi Sinha)
