LiveJournal Tags

A couple days ago LiveJournal added the ability to tag posts, a la Flickr, del.icio.us, Technorati, etc. I’ve gone through and added some tags to my last few entries and I’ve also allowed anyone on my friends list to add their own tags to my posts.

On the down side, LJ has implemented them in a spectacularly useless way. You can display all of someone’s posts tagged a certain way but you can’t search all of LiveJournal for posts with that tag. There is also no way to view all the tags someone has. It’s really too bad because these are two of the most useful things you can do with tags. Hopefully that will be added soon.
