Yahoo to Shut Down Delicious?

by Jean Tower

Several news sources are reporting that Yahoo intends to shutter Delicious. This would be a loss. I love Delicious and use it as my social bookmarking site. My hope is that instead of closing it down Yahoo manages to sell it off so that it has a chance to continue, but JUST IN CASE, Delicious users should export their bookmarks.

First, go to delicious and sign in. Then go to:

https://secure.delicious.com/settings/bookmarks/export

export-delicious copy

Once you get to this page it is a very simple matter to get your download. I chose to include my tags and notes. The export is an html file, which is a convenient way to store and use your bookmarks.

Let’s hope this is an unnecessary precaution and that Yahoo finds a way to help delicious survive.
