Tags or Full text tagging?

Hi everyone,
I am developing a web apps,
and I have to chose which method is better (for me): Tags or Full text
tagging ?

Usually when a user inserts a certain text content, he have to tags it,
so other users can retrive the content.

Inserting tags it a boring works for users, then I am locking for some
system for auto-tagging the whole text contents (about 50 words).
A simple methods is counting a word in all content entries, and if the
word’s number is quite hight the word become a TAG.
This methods is not bad, but IMHO it is slow.
Do you have some idea, or does already exist some gem, to implement
auto-tagging ?
Thank you,
Alessandro

Why not just full text search the content and skip tags entirely?
Maybe sphinx with the thinking-sphinx plugin…
