Social Cataloguing

By Jessie Buckley

what is social cataloguing
What is Social Cataloguing?

Sites whose primary purpose is the cataloguing of material owned by its members (books, DVDs, music), while also building a community of users with that shared interest. Above and beyond the standard cataloguing, users build up a vast quantity of social data around the records, such as reviews, recommendations, ratings and tags.
