RIP Delicious

In Uncategorized on December 17, 2010 at 2:45 pm

As you may know, Yahoo is closing Delicious a primary social networking bookmarking and tagging site.  Where will all the bookmarks go?  One suggestion is the Library of Congress but due to funding issues in the Federal Government this may not be a viable option.  Where will Internet users move their bookmarks?  Once again, not sure who the other kids on the block are but as good librarians we will seek out other sources for organizing and tagging our information.  RIP Delicious, you will be missed.
