Touting Today’s Top Tech Triumph, Toluu Tackles Tagging!

Toluu’s tags, totally tremendous!  Today’s timesink: tagging Toluu totality!  Ok, enough of that, this really is great news.

Caleb Elston, Toluu’s founder, tells us that tagging was the most requested feature for Toluu.  I’m very impressed with the implementation as tagging really permeates the site now, it’s feels like a true integration, not a hacked together add on.   When adding tags, the auto-complete will cut down on typos.  Along with tagging you’ll see better sorting options on many pages.

A word of warning, if you reimport your OPML you will lose your exsisting tags so you’re gonna want to sync everything before you get started and then use the bookmarklet (or single add) to add new feeds to your Toluu account.

Let’s take a look at some screen shots:

I’m sure I missed some things but that’s a good rundown of some of the most important additions.  This is a big upgrade in usability for Toluu but it relies on Toluu users taking the time to tag their feeds, something that provides only a small amount of additional functionality for themselves.  As people use the tagging system you’ll see Toluu making changes to get the most bang out of it.  I’ll go ahead and predict that grouping of tags that are similar except for extraneous characters and plurals will be added.   Enough of me, go play with it yourself and get tagging – I need to find some new podcasts!

    Tagging seems to be everywhere now. Almost like it's an industry standard or something. I think it works well.
