System to Extend Siloed Frameworks for Tagging of Social Media Content to Allow Shared Tags across Content Providers

Existing frameworks to tag social media content provide tag entries that are isolated

within a specific application. Often a user's conversational context around a topic of interest (Tag) spans content hosted in multiple social media, networking, or collaboration systems. The problem is that the conversational context around a topic of interest (Tag) when dispersed across social media and collaboration systems cannot be

consolidated using a shared Tag.

For example, if in one social media, networking, or collaboration system (e.g., a messaging system) a user tags content related to an upcoming event, any related conversational entries which may appear in an alternate system (e.g., email), cannot be correlated or consolidated, even if tagged with the same tag.

Several inventions and technology solutions address tagging of social media content in social media, networking or collaboration systems, but none addresses the novelty expressed in this disclosure.

The novel solution is a system for establishing a tag that is sharable across social media and collaboration systems and maintains a conversational contextual reference around topics of interest that span multiple systems (e.g., email, social network, professional network, collaboration, etc.).

The core idea is for a system that allows a user to create a tag entry that can be used to consolidate conversational context around topics of interest, specifically when that tagged content may reside in more than one social media, networking, or collaboration systems.

The system allows a user to tag content in any social media, networking or collaboration system. This allows the user to scope the visibility of the tag and tagged content; the user can keep it within one system only or share it acr...
