On a tangent, what do some of the Commons
regulars think of the system
Facebook has for tagging people in photos? That would seem to be an
application that would be very useful for Commons.
Is there a description for non-facebook-users? Or do I have to become a member?
Users place the tags directly onto the image; the effect is similar to
a HTML image map. They click on a person in the picture, and enter the
name of the person as the tag, and the coordinates are stored. Then
users viewing the photo roll over the tag and see a frame appear over
the image at the coordinates specified.
