Folksonomies can be viewed as three mode graphs or as graphs made up of nodes (tags, users, resources) connected by hyper-edges. I shall report on some network statistical properties of a folksonomy graph based on data collected for the del.icio.us system. Moreover, by introducing a suitable distance between resources based on tag co-occurrence, I shall show that folksonomies embed a meaningful semantic clusterization of resources.
