GroupMe extends the idea of social tagging systems like del.icio.us, Flickr or BibSoNomy by introducing the group dimension. The foundations of social tagging systems are so-called folksonomies, which describe how users (folks) tag resources (e.g. photos, videos, publications, etc.). In technical terms a folksonomy is just a collection of tag assignments. Over time it is likely that semantics emerge, e.g. tags that are often assigned to same resources may be synonyms. Hence, folksonomies are promising to improve (web) search, etc. With GroupMe!'s approach of taggable groups they extend tag assignments with a group dimension.
