We analyse data obtained from several collaborative tagging systems and discover that user interests can be very diverse. Traditional methods for representing interests of users are usually not able to reflect such diversity. We propose a method to construct user profiles of multiple interests using data in a collaborative tagging system. Our evaluation suggests that the proposed method is able to generate user profiles which reflect the diversity of user interests and can be used to help provide more focused recommendation.
