Social tagging systems have established themselves as an important part in
day's web and have attracted the interest from our research community in a
riety of investigations. The overall vision of our community is that simply
rough interactions with the system, i.e., through tagging and sharing of
sources, users would contribute to building useful semantic structures as
ll as resource indexes using uncontrolled vocabulary not only due to the
sy-to-use mechanics. Henceforth, a variety of assumptions about social
gging systems have emerged, yet testing them has been difficult due to the
sence of suitable data. In this work we thoroughly investigate three
ailable assumptions - e.g., is a tagging system really social? - by examining
ve log data gathered from the real-world public social tagging system
bSonomy. Our empirical results indicate that while some of these assumptions
ld to a certain extent, other assumptions need to be reflected and viewed in
very critical light. Our observations have implications for the design of
ture search and other algorithms to better reflect the actual user behavior.

BibSonomy is a web-based social resource sharing system which allows users to organise and share bookmarks and publications in a collaborative manner. In this paper we present the system, followed by a description of the insights in the structure of its bibliographic data that we gained by applying techniques we developed in the area of Formal Concept Analysis.
