    I just heard on CNBC that yahoo is going to kill off delicious.com.

    However, I have not been able to find confirmation on this.

    Bottom line, don't invest your work time with them until this is either confirmed or refuted.

    Confirmation, more or less. Doesn't look good.

      You're right it doesn't look good. That's a bummer especially as the site has just updated recently to make posting links easier.

        Maybe some optimist will come along and buy it and save the day. smile

    Yeah, this is absolutely horrible news for me. I've got ~3000 bookmarks across my two main accounts and use delicious as my primary search engine for some types of topics. It is one of my favorite websites. sad

    Consensus in the circles I run with seems to be that pinboard.in and diigo are the best alternatives, with minority support for xmarks, mister wong, connotea, tagfoot, and historius. But none fit my needs quite as well as delicious. Argharghargh.

      This might work for you if you have an older account:

        Cool, thanks! I'll check it out.

        ETA: Hmm, it's pretty basic atm. It's currently just a chronological list of bookmarks. Tag and privacy data appears to be preserved and there's some search functions, but you can't click on a tag, for example, and have it take you to a list of all your bookmarks with that tag, let alone anything approximating delicious's Popular and Recent views. Also, I'm not crazy about being associated in any way with the word "spabba."

        Still, as a quick backup tool, you could do worse.

    This is heart breaking news. I just started backlinking about a month ago and was getting decent traffic from delicious.com. Hoe things get sorted out and delicious stays on.

    Delicious will probably get sold to some up-and-coming-company that wants to revamp it. Delicious is a brand name, even though it is deteriorated. Luckily many sites are offering to import delicious bookmarks.
