Over A Million Delicious Users Served
Del.icio.us, the bookmarking service purchased by Yahoo, has registered over one million users of the service now.
Yahoo’s Jeremy Zawodny posted the Delicious news to the Yahoo Search blog about the social bookmark site. He noted the seven-digit number of registered users was more than triple its membership when Yahoo acquired Delicious in December 2005.
