The Tag Cloud Block displays tags or categories from a Blog, Gallery, Album, or Products Page in a graphic cloud formation. Each tag's text size is based on how often it's used on the connected page, meaning the tags you use most frequently display larger. You can display the tags in alphabetical order, by weight, or by activity.
