Tags are short descriptions of content. They are the foundation of organizing and distributing content on the internet. In the above screenshot of the editor story submission workflow, you can see there are 8 tags that have a maximum of 30 characters per tag. Previously, we operated under a system of 5 tags with a maximum of 25 characters per tag. The grouping of stories is an art and science. More short writing about the longer writing will create better automated curation and distribution. Here’s a working version of the tag page (by @faithcorinne):
I’m excited to start better informing our community how time reading evolves by subject matter. Have a lot more to say about the value, beauty and systematic creativity that surround tags, but it’s time for my next meeting. Later.
