----------------
You can also add tags for yourself on your [profile
-settings](%%action.profilesettings%%) page. Use single words to
+settings](%%action.profilesettings%%) page or by using the edit tags
+button on your profile page. Use single words to
describe yourself, your experiences and your interest. The tags will
become links on your profile page to a list of all the users on the
site who use that same tag. It can be a nice way to find people who
are related to you geographically or who have a common interest.
-Tagging your subscriptions
---------------------------
+Tagging others
+--------------
-You can also tag your subscriptions, on the subscriptions page. This
-makes it easy to organize your subscriptions into groups and sort
-through them separately.
+You can also tag other users by using the edit tags button next to
+their profile. Such tags are called *people tags*. Once you have
+created a people tag, you can add or remove users from it using the
+tag's edit form. This makes it easy to organize your subscriptions
+into groups and sort through them separately. Also, it will let
+you create custom lists of people that others can subscribe to.
+
+You can also send a notice "to the attention of" your subscribers
+whom you've marked with a particular tag (note: *not* people who've
+marked themselves with that tag). "@#family hello" will send a
+notice to all your subscribers you've marked with the tag 'family'.
+
+Private and public people tags
+------------------------------
+
+A private people tag is only visible to the creator, it cannot be
+subscribed to, but the timeline can be viewed. To create a new
+private prepend a '.' to the tag in the tags editing box. To set
+an existing public tag as private or vice-versa, go to the tag's
+edit page.
+
+The most used public tags are displayed in the
+[public people tag cloud](%%action.publicpeopletagcloud%%). Their
+size shows their frequency of use.
+
+Remote people tags
+------------------
+
+You can even [tag remote users](%%action.profilesettings%%). Just
+enter the remote profile's URI and click on the "Fetch" button to
+fetch the profile, you can then add tags and save them.
+
+Subscribing to the timeline of a people tag on another server also
+works. Just copy the URL of the people tag's timeline page to the
+[OStatus subscription](%%action.ostatussub%%) form.
-You can also send a notice "to the attention of" everyone you've
-marked with a particular tag (note: *not* people who've marked
-themselves with that tag). "@#family hello" will send a notice to
-everyone you've marked with the tag 'family'. \ No newline at end of file
