I'm a recent immigrant from reddit and have been thinking a lot about the mechanics of Hubski, and I've come to realize that the main non-word mechanic of Hubski (follow users not tags, boopskis as a reshare, unmoderated tagging) are how Tumblr works. The main differences, as I see it, are threaded conversations and a focus on text instead of easily reblogged pictures and videos.
I vaguely like Tumblr and how I can curate my list in a combination of following the right users and Tumblr Savioring the right tags. I'm excited to see how Hubski works for me once I've accomplished the same here.
THEY'RE CALLED CIRCLEDOTS AAAARRGH
