Tags: Web Bumper Stickers

Our new entry tagging secret beta stealth feature might be a little difficult to see since it doesn't work on IE yet, though Joe did a great job with screen shots.  (Joe: It's not much of a stealth feature if you tell everybody about it, is it?)

Tags are just labels that you can apply to your entries; since they're public, they're kind of like electronic bumper stickers.  If you use Firefox or Mozilla, you can play with them on beta.journals.aol.com/<your screen name>.  Otherwise, well, here's a little animation:

...and you can see the results below.  I have no idea what "stealth" is going to link to, since right now it just does a general web-wide tag search.  I think that's kind of fun, actually, but your mileage may vary.  We're looking at various ideas, including having the links go to a blog-specific search page (but perhaps with links off to the general web search to see what other people have chosen the same bumper stickers).  Also, we'll leverage the results to provide better categorization tools for your entries and blogs.  It's pretty wide open at the moment.  So if you have opinions, let us know.
