A social cataloging application is a web application designed to help users to catalog things--books, CDs, etc--owned or otherwise of interest to them. The phrase refers to two characteristics that generally arise from a multi-user cataloging environment:

  • The ability to share catalogs and interact with others based upon shared items;
  • The enrichment or improvement of cataloging description through either explicit cooperation in the production of cataloging metadata or through the analysis of implicit data (eg., "People who like X also like Y").

Some of the more notable social cataloging applications include:
