Currently we have two tags for NFC:

  • , 44 questions and no excerpt
  • , 27 questions and this excerpt:

    NFC is a short-range wireless technology, typically requiring a distance of 4cm or less to initiate a connection between two endpoints.

A quick inspection shows that all the questions seem to be about the same thing. I would say that this is a clear case of tag duplication. What needs to be done about these two tags?


To simplify voting I will post my suggested solution here as an answer instead of as part of the question.

I think we should keep as the main tag, and make the other a synonym. Three letter abbrivations are annoying, but in this case I think the term NFC is much more well established than near field communication.

We can move the tag excerpt from to .

    Also, a synonym might be nice.

  • Just want to add that all other tags have synonyms the other way, like ai->artificial-intelligence, which I would argue is an equally well established abbreviation, if not even more.
