I read a this post on Niall Kennedy’s blog about the new features in the Google Toolbar which includes the ability to store and
tag label bookmarks that can also later be retrieved when logging into a different machine.
Do they think that the term “labels” is easier to understand and explain to the common John Dow instead of “tags”?
Did they do it just to set themselves apart from the whole “tagging” frenzy going on, or did they simply chose this term before the “tags” term went very public?
Anyhow, I personally prefer “tags” over “labels”. When I say “labels” I always have a connotation of sticky notes on boxes.
Which one do you prefer, Tags or Labels?
