Microsoft has announced that they will retire Tags and Notes in SharePoint Online. The article indicates that users should use Yammer or the Newsfeed instead. While I am not terribly surprised by this move. I am disappointed that the only viable replacement is Yammer or the Newsfeed. Neither of these solutions offer a true replacement for the Tags and Notes feature. Neither has a decent “consolidated view” of my tags and notes, offers a Public and Private view, or offers a simple in browser experience for the user to collect and manage links with tags and notes.

Users I talk to still miss the My Quick Links feature from back in 2007 that was “replaced” with Tags and Notes.
