Delicious Gets Sold Once Again, This Time To Science

Delicious has had an interesting journey throughout its eleven years. The social bookmarking service was founded in 2003 by Joshua Schachter, and acquired by Yahoo two years later. Yahoo sold it to AVOS systems (a company founded by YouTube founders YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen) in 2011, which saw the launch of a whole new version of Delicious. …

That ‘New’ Delicious Has Some New Features

Delicious announced that it has added some new features after remaining quite for a while.

Delicious Has A New iPhone App

Delicious announced that it has a new iPhone app available in the App Store. A little over a month ago, the site got a new design (again). It’s still in demo mode, but it is the basis for the new app, so perhaps they can get some users used to it on the app before changing it up for all …

Delicious Has Another New Design, And It Doesn’t Look Like Pinterest

Delicious just unveiled a preview of “the brand new Delicious”. It seems like just a year ago that we were seeing a brand new Delicious. I guess that didn’t pan out very well. I’m just glad they don’t have all those dots in their name anymore. You can check out the new site at demo.delicious.com. At least it doesn’t look …

Delicious: Forget The Browser Extensions. Use The Bookmarklet.

It wasn’t that long ago that Delicious’ tombstone was all but chiseled. Then Avos (from the founders of YouTube) stepped in to save the day. This was generally applauded by users, when the announcement came last April. But then in September when the site relaunched with its “stacks” concept, the applause died down. Hard core users were not happy with …

Delicious Acquires Trunk.ly

The new Delicious was launched back in September, and while some of us liked the direction the site was taking, I think it’s safe to say that the redesign was not a big hit with the majority of the site’s established community. Avos (the company from YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen), which acquired Delicious from Yahoo earlier this …

Google Panda Update: A Delicious Set of Resources

A lot of Delicious users aren’t digging the new version of Delicious, but I kind of like it. Sue me. I’ve started a new “stack” for resources related to Google’s Panda Update, which webmasters can use to stay informed about it, and hopefully get some useful knowledge to help them survive future updates or help them get back in Google’s …

New Delicious Not a Big Hit With Users of Old Delicious

I wasn’t already using Delicious before they unveiled the redesign this week, so I’m not missing anything that was there before. That said, I’ve known about Delicious for years. I’ve checked it out from time to time, but just never found it all that appealing. I’m guessing I wasn’t alone, which could be why it almost died before Yahoo sold …

And here’s what it looks like: The new delicious utilizes a new feature called …

Back in April, Yahoo announced that YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen had acquired social bookmarking site Delicious, and that they would keep the site up and running as part of their company Avos.

Yahoo-Delicious Sale Rumors Swirl (Again)

One way or another, it’s sounding increasingly likely that Delicious will wind up with a new owner.  After a rumor suggested last week that Yahoo had sold the property for $5 million, a report’s now claimed that Yahoo is about to sell Delicious for perhaps 30 percent of that sum.

Yahoo Sale Of Delicious For $5 Million Rumored

Four months ago, an internal Yahoo document leaked, letting the world know that Yahoo intended to “sunset” Delicious.  Now, there’s a sign Yahoo might have sold the organization for $5 million instead. To be perfectly clear: this has not been confirmed through official channels.  There aren’t even multiple anonymous sources behind the story.  But The Next Web stated this afternoon, …

Resources to Help You Migrate Away From Delicious

By now, you’ve probably heard the unfortunate news. Yahoo is sunsetting Delicious (and a few other platforms).

Folks are upset (or maybe disappointed is a better word). I’m one of them. I’ve come to rely on Delicious as my primary bookmarking system (not so much on the social side). And now I’m left looking for alternatives.
