Since then I've thought of a couple more sites that are neither hierarchical nor tag-based. Facebook and eHow style sites.

There is another pattern that is neither hierarchical, tag-based nor search-based, which is the "invitation-only" pattern of a site like pastebin. You can only find content by referral.

It is therefore not a coincidence that Facebook is utterly terrible as a content repository. (I am unfamiliar with eHow.)
