Image retrieval is one of important areas of research. Of late,'user tagging' or 'folkosonomy' has received considerable attention from the researchers. This paper makes an attempt to describe the term folksonomy and studies the structure and form of free text tags assigned by the users for image retrieval using Flickr. The study shows that Folksonomies share the problems inherent to all uncontrolled vocabularies.
