Ads by Google

Del icio us 2 1The long established, popular social bookmarking service, Delicious.com, is undergoing a major facelift after being acquired by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. Although there’s not many details about the exact changes to the site, existing Delicious.com members must agree to let Yahoo transfer their bookmarks to the new Internet company AVOS, by September 23 2011. Click here to make the transfer.

The company says that “any Delicious users who haven’t opted in by September 23 will lose all their bookmarks and account information“.  When the site is relaunched, existing members will maintain uninterrupted use of Delicious, keep their Delicious username, account information and bookmarks. All bookmarks marked private will remain that way in the transfer process.

Although many bookmarking sites have emerged since the founding of Delicious back in 2003 (and acquired by Yahoo in 2005), the clean minimalist design, and ease-of-use makes the site practical for quickly adding and storing selected bookmarks in the cloud. Bookmarks can be added to Delicious using a browser toolbar bookmarklet or by manually adding them to your account.

Private and public bookmarks on Delicious can be searched, organized by tags, tag bundles, and keyword search. Members of the site can also subscribe to the bookmark lists of other members. Delicious.com was one of the first sites to popularize the use of tagging for the purpose of managing and searching data. Many long-time users of the service are no doubt looking forward to the forthcoming upgrades, so be sure to transfer your bookmarks now.
