Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Tagging

  • What is a tag?

A tag can be a single keyword or a phrase that describes the topic, theme, or subject of the post. You can add as many tags as you wish, and so can other community members. Some communities require you to use one word tags; other communities allow tags that consist of more than one word. The easiest way to tell what the rules are in your community is to click in the Add Tag box.

 

The tool tip that appears below the Add Tag box tells you whether to use commas or spaces between tags.

 

If the tip is Use commas between tags, you can use phrases as tags.   For example, in a post about a mouse, you might have these tags: mouseUSB mouseoptical mousewirelessDPI.

 

If the tip is Use spaces between tags, each word you enter will become a separate tag.   If tags can only be single words, the same post about a mouse might these tags: mouse USB optical wireless DPI.

 

  • What is a tag cloud?

A tag cloud displays tags used frequently within the community or within an area of the community. The more frequently a tag is used, the larger it appears in the tag cloud. Just by looking at a tag cloud, you can get a sense of what the hot topics are in a given area.

 

  • What can I do with tags?

Tagging is a way to help other users discover interesting posts. It's also a way to organize content in the community that you think is related. When you apply tags to a post, you add to the value by providing another way for people to find it.

 

  • Why do people tag?

Some users will tag posts for their own convenience in finding them later. Other users enjoy helping categorize interesting posts for the benefit of the community. Users who tag lots of posts gain status by appearing on Tag Leaderboards.

 

  • How do I tag?

A tag can be a single keyword or a phrase that describes the topic, theme, or subject of the post. You can use tags to bookmark, categorize, or identify a post. Your tags can also help other community members find interesting content.

 

To add a tag:

 

    1. Navigate to an interesting post or comment.  When you're at a place where you can read the whole message, you'll see the Tags area.
    2. Click in the Add Tag box to see whether tags must be a single word or can also be a phrase.

 

If the tip is Use commas between tags, you can use phrases as tags.

 

If the tip is Use spaces between tags, each word you enter will become a separate tag.

 

  1. Type your tags into the Add Tag field. 
    You can type more than one tag - just put a space or a comma between tags.
  2. Click Add Tag
    The Tags area updates with your new tags. That's all there is to it.
  • Where are my tags?

You can find messages you've tagged by visiting your profile and clicking the tag. You can also click on a tag on any cloud and look at the Most Tagged section.
