Popularity of tagging

The Pew Internet and American Life Project has published the results of recent research into the popularity of tagging. To quote:

A December 2006 survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that 28% of internet users -- and 7% on any typical day -- have tagged or categorized online content such as photos, news stories or blog posts.
These are people who responded "yes" to the following question: "Please tell me if you ever use the internet to categorize or tag online content like a photo, news story, or a blog post." The survey wording was designed to capture the growing use of tagging on sites such as (a site for sharing browser bookmarks), (a photo sharing site), (a video sharing site) and (the blog search engine).
