I have noticed that, even with the most popular tags (such as ), there are very few followers for tags. I have read about tags in the Help Center to try and find some more info about this, but I'm still wondering if there's some statistics available for:

  • How frequently do people actually follow tags?
  • What is the most followed tag across all of the sites?
  • Is the feature 'worth it' - as in, is it something that should be more/less promoted? Do people actually click on the feed items when they get notified about a tag?

    You don't need to follow any tags here, there are few enough questions you can read 'em all as they come in. On busier non-meta sites tag following is much more useful though. Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 20:40

  • Now that Custom Question Lists is out on all sites, watched/favorite tags are a little less useful, except as a way to highlight items. Ignored tags are much more useful. Still, on most sites (e.g. all meta sites) I don't watch nor ignore any tags.

  • How would you link tags across sites? A term could have very different meanings in different context. And different sites certainly are different contexts. Commented Jun 14, 2019 at 19:38
