In recent years, there has been considerable interest in collaborative tagging. This paper proposes a hybrid fuzzy clustering method for collaborative tagging. Key feature of the method includes using a combination of the fuzzy c-means and the subtractive clustering to handle collaborative tagging problems. The method allows a resource to belong to more than one taggings with different membership grade. The HFCT method need not know in advance the number of taggings, in order to avoid the
