The Telligent Enterprise 4.0 tag service in this release includes content tagging and #hashtags that allow users to create conversations and draw in other participants' conversations.
- The tag service is built deeply into the Telligent user experience in ways you're probably already familiar with, helping to drive discussions - #hashtags and content tagging.
- The tag service is part of the core functionality of this release.
- #Hashtags contribute to reputation and content quality scores as well as general standing by increasing views of similarly #hashtagged content.
- #Hashtags can be indexed by search, and tagged content can be found in search results, encouraging community members to include others' discussions in their comments, replies, post, and status messages.
Taggable content includes:
- Forum threads
- Forum replies
- Blog posts
- Gallery posts
- Wiki pages
- Status messages
The number of times an item is tagged enters into content quality calculations.
Tagging contributes to community participation by linking discussions within a single group application or across the community and encourages exploration of topics by returning a list of content containing the tag when you click it.
Hashtags in rich text editors are not supported in Internet Explorer 8 and versions backward. They are supported in Internet Explorer 9.
The tag service APIs can be utilized by third-party developers for applications. For information about extensibility, see the API lists.
