I like delicious.com because it lets me save and categorize my bookmarks, and it lets me get to my bookmarks wherever I am. Most of my bookmarks on Delicious are private. They are just links to things I want to be able to find again.
Recently an article appeared on TechCrunch saying delicious.com might be shut down by its current owner, Yahoo. Later, a note appeared on the Delicious blog stating:
No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.
So I would describe the future of Delicious as “uncertain”.
I don’t make much use of the “social” part of Delicious. I’ve tried Stumbleupon and it is a bit too social for me, offering to help me find stuff based on my interests, and wants me to share everything. I think I do better searching on my own for things that interest me using Google.
I’m looking around for a replacement for Delicious. If you’re in the same boat, searchengineland.com lists ten alternatives:
