“Unsocial” - FAST Search for SharePoint 2010

I’ve just noticed that FAST Search is not able to crawl social tags. Social tags are tags created with the Tags & Note board. Social tags are different from Enterprise Keywords (managed tags). Enterprise Keywords will be persisted with the list item itself in the Content DB and social tags will be persisted in the Profile DB. Though FAST Search is able to crawl managed tags pretty well, it doesn't support social tags at the moment. In turn the SharePoint Server OOB Search supports both. This a feature restriction of FAST Search. Microsoft’s edition comparison sheet suggests that there is only a plus, but this isn’t the truth for any particular case. I really miss the social tag crawling in FAST Search. Social tagging in combination with a great search like FAST would be a huge benefit for companies. Now I’ve three options:
  1. Use the OOB Search and miss all the great FAST Search features
  2. Use FAST and miss the social tag crawling and refinement
  3. Wait for third party tools…
FAST Search for “I like it”:
OOB Search for “I like it”:

There isn’t always a plus - that’s life!

I don't see any tags in my OOB search result. Any ideas? Do I need to change a setting? I did a full crawl after tagging couple of pages.

Hi, you need not to do any special configuration. Wich kind of tags you mean? there's a difference between social tags (stored in the user profile) and shell tags (stored at the item itself). Bye Christian

Hi Christian, did you found any workaround or 3rd party tool to get social tags and FAST working together?

Regards Michael

Do you have any good references on the differences between Enterprise Keywords and Social Tags (more info than is provided in this article)?

Check the SharePoint Solution Generator, point it at your site, and you get all the pretty contenttypeid's. This is how I have been moving forward on this.

Understudy advances are basically a piece of life for most undergrads. As the expense of instruction keeps on soaring quicker than increments in salary happen, understudies are compelled to swing to credits to pay for their tutoring. usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
