Tags are keywords that help describe your saved articles in Pocket. Unlike folders, you can add multiple tags to a single article. For example, if you save an article about productivity at work, you can tag it with "productivity" and "lifehacks" to help find it later. Tags appear beneath an article’s title and publisher domain.
