The origin of Taxonomy is from the Greek word “taxis” meaning arrangement and “nomos” meaning law. Taxonomy helps us classify according to the pre-defined system which results in preparing a conceptual framework to build up the basis for discussion, analysis or retrieval of information. Taxonomy helps us in organizing our content into hierarchical relationships, this way it becomes easier to search for particular information. Defining taxonomy can help us achieve several benefits.

Basically taxonomy is a scheme for classification of information and it does not have any relationship with sales or revenue generation. It refers to the effective formation of content within a well-defined scope for ease and precise access. Most of the social networking platforms use these taxonomies as a way for the categorization of media.
