Tabbing stories

Postby AndyP » Sat Jun 03, 2006 7:56 am

This seems to be one of the latest innovations around the web, tabbing news stories on sites. There are two different ways that I've seen for tabbing stories :

1. Where users tab a new story if it interests you and the most popular stories are then listed on the site

2. Where users associate key words with stories and the search system then uses those to find suitable similar stories (which is quite effective because it means that the search is far more efficient).

Two ideas, I was wondering if there were any ways of these being developed for Coranto.

Yea, tagging :) I had just visited gametab.com and got tab in my head. Search news does a news search very effetively, that part is true, but to have users actually associate key words with each story for more efficient searching (because a search would search only key words that are the most tagged in a story) and engage in that kind of interactivity with the site would just be a nice feature to add.

Just an idea really.
