What if people still tagged posts but they weren't visible at all except in someones profile to show what tags they most often use?

What use would you get out of tags that way, save for statistical information?

I was under the impression that tags are another way to get to content, akin to subscribing to people.

Hey thomasbaart, it was a suggestion made back when people could follow tags. That's no longer the case. You are correct that tags are used for content discovery. Welcome to Hubski, if you have any questions, feel free to pm me. See you around.
