English abstract

This M.A. thesis evaluates and analyses the use of social tagging systems taking Flickr as an example. Hereby the focus lies on multilingualism and the resulting problems for searching images. First, an introduction in social tagging as well as and an overview on current studies on social tagging are given. Furthermore, Flickr and its system properties are presented as well as relevant studies on Flickr. For analyzing multilingualism on Flickr a user test was conducted. The results are presented and analyzed with focus on multilingualism.

German abstract

Im Rahmen der vorliegenden Arbeit soll die Nutzung von Social Tagging-Systemen am Beispiel von Flickr untersucht werden. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Mehrsprachigkeit und den daraus resultierenden Probleme für die Suche nach Bildern. Dazu wird zunächst anhand aktueller Untersuchungen in die Thematik „Social Tagging“ eingeführt.Anschließend werden die Funktionalitäten und Besonderheiten von Flickr betrachtet und für diese Arbeit relevante Studien präsentiert. Zur Untersuchung der Mehrsprachigkeit auf Flickr wurde ein Benutzertest durchgeführt. Die Ergebnisse dieses Tests werden zusammengefasst und im Hinblick auf Mehrsprachigkeit analysiert.
