Tag Pages: What You Need To Know
The following journal applies to deviants who have access to our new tags feature that was launched to a small test audience last week.  If you received the following Hot Topic in your Message Center, you likely have access to tags.  If you didn’t receive the following Hot Topic, you likely don’t have access at this time.  Sit tight, as we’ll be rolling out the release to a wider audience soon!
Tags are our new way to label and create conversations around a topic. Tags can be used everywhere — in Status Updates, Collections, comments, deviation descriptions, or Journals. When clicked, you’ll discover a tag page full of content and activity around the topic.
As someone in the test audience for tags, you’re among the first to see the beginnings of our tag system and we’d appreciate your feedback -- both in terms of what you think so far, and where’d you’d like to see things go in the future.
