Some new additions to the Delicious bookmarking service, now owned by Yahoo, has incorporated a couple of new features for its users.

Yahoo’s social media aspirations led the company to purchase companies like Delicious and Flickr. Recently the Delicious service team made a little Flickr-related tweak.

Bookmarks that point to Flickr images will display a thumbnail of the picture in Delicious. This provides a preview for those users without requiring a click on the link first.

Delicious also replaced the Inbox feature with “Your Network,” the team posted on the Delicious blog. From the post:

To make sharing easier, we’ve just released a new feature called “your network”. You can add other del.icio.us users to your network either by visiting their del.icio.us pages or from the your network page itself. Once someone is in your network, you can keep track of their latest saved public bookmarks. And when you save new bookmarks you can easily share them with people in your network just by clicking on their username.

Your network replaces the user subscriptions functionality previously offered by the “inbox”. If you had any existing user subscriptions in your inbox we automatically moved them over to your network, so you haven’t lost any connections you already had.

The change seems oriented at making the Inbox feature more clear to users in addition to the improved sharing features they described.
