Comment Tag vs Label (Score 1) 284

I would like to propose that henceforth the term label shall be applied to an item by it's owner or creator, whereas the term tag shall be applied by other persons. This would be particularly useful in a public site like Flickr where someone might 'label' their photo with a term relevant to themselves only (such as the name of their car, should they have named it) whereas another person, to whom the label is meaningless, may wish to 'tag' it with the more general term (in this case, car). Then facilitating the ability to search both labels and tags independently would be an added bonus for all using the site.
