Delicious has introduced a "Bulk Edit" feature, that allows users to easily share, unshare, tag, and untag numerous bookmarks all at once. The feature is simply a way to make the social bookmarking service more usable.

Where Would This Come in Handy?

Delicious Bulk EditWell, Dave Dash gives a few examples on the Delicious blog:

- Editing holiday wishlists

- Sharing bookmarks you imported as private

- Marking private those NSFW bookmarks before you share your delicious age with mixed company

- Refining your tags for maximum awesomeness

One feature that is not available however, as one commenter points out, is the ability to bulk delete. This would actually be a useful feature as well, and Dash was kind enough to respond and hint that Delicious would be looking into this, and possibly include such a feature in the future. So do not be surprised when that comes.

    thanks for the post, can’t wait to use it! What is your opinion regarding delicious?? This is a fantastic tool for me, but it could so much more user friendly if we had a real search function. Do you have any feature to suggest??

      To be honest, I don’t use it much myself. I’ve considered getting more involved with it though, and features like this certainly can’t hurt.
