The sharing model seems ripe for abuse as a content ranking method. The hashtag subskis seems like they'd be polluted with whatever the eventual powerusers reshare with each other.

Yeah, I'm a little wary of following hashtags, it really is equivalent to "subreddits" and we all know how that turned out.

But the "following people" mechanic is much harder to abuse, if I don't like what someone is sharing with me, I can simply unfollow them.

It's true that tags are community grounds. That's why I primarily follow people. Tags are a good way to find good people to follow.
