You've all played hangman. With this site you play hangman using tags from, or flickr, or a couple others. What are tags? Those are labels that help to categorize links or images that you post on those sites. And, if you guess the tag word correctly before hanging the poor soul, you have the option of going directly to that site and viewing the items in that category.
OK, so it's not the most useful site in the world. But, it does help to teach you about tags. And, it's another example of how the web is sharing its data with other sites.
