Social Squared provides the ability to Tag posts within a forum. Tagging posts with a specific key phrase(s) allows the post to be found using search or the tag cloud view. When searching, if a post is tagged with the search phrase, even if the content within the post doesn’t match the search phrase, the post will be returned if the post tags match the phrase. The tag cloud view will display a list of terms that increase in size based upon the number of times that tag has been used. Clicking the tag from the tag cloud view will return any posts that contain the tag. Suggested tags will also display as you type your post. These suggestions are based upon the tags used across all forums. You can either choose to ignore the suggestions, or select one or more tags that are suggested. The suggested tags help bring uniformity and consistency to the tags used.
