Startags

Page history last edited by raynevandunem 8 years, 11 months ago

A star tag is a proposed way for users to assign a numerical rating to their posts.  The star tag is prefixed with the asterisk "*" and given a numerical value of 0 through 9 based on a user's rating.  This is similar in concept to the rating systems used for Yelp or Amazon, but can be used in different services like [[Twitter]] or [[Facebook]] when discussing any subject or location.  For example:

: Just saw #inception - totally awesome movie! *9

or

: Tried the new coffee shop on Main St and 5th... they need to change the water or something *1

 

It was proposed some time in 2009 at Gnomedex, a technology conference hosted by the staff of Chris Pirillo's Lockergnome LLC, as a further school of taxonomy, but it did not prove popular and was not adopted by any substantial amount of Twitter users or applications.
