An informal tag is a descriptive label that has a name with optional description. It can be attached to resources such as assets, personal profiles, personal messages, personal notes, community forums and forum contributions, comments and communities in order to make them easy to find.
An informal tag can be public (visible to all users) or private (visible only to the user that created it).
It is possible to have multiple informal tags with the same name, whether they are public or private. However each tag has an unique identifier (guid) that is used when attaching tags to resources to ensure the correct tag is attached.
