Social tagging systems have established themselves as an important part in today’s web and have attracted the inter- est of our research community in a variety of investigations. This has led to several assumptions about tagging, such as that tagging systems exhibit a social component. In this work we overcome the previous absence of data for testing such an assumption. We thoroughly study social interac- tion, leveraging for the first time live log data gathered from the real-world public social tagging system BibSonomy. Our results indicate that sharing of resources constitutes an im- portant and indeed social aspect of tagging.
