Delicious is dead. Now what?


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.

I’ve heard the chatter online yesterday and this morning, done a little digging and wanted to share some of the posts I thought highlighted the best options (as well as the process of downloading and migrating your existing Delicious bookmarks). Not sure what direction I’m going to go yet, but I’ll be weighing my options over the weekend:
