Yahoo Shutting Down Delicious?
By on December 16th, 2010

Yahoo has been shutting down tons of its products including MyBlogLog and Geocities and also laying off employees to restructure the organization. However, there is some buzz going around that Yahoo might be shutting down Delicious, one of the most popular bookmarking services in the world.

As you can see from the image above, Yahoo has clearly marked Delicious as one of the products in the Sunset section along with MyBlogLog and Yahoo! duds like Yahoo! Buzz and Yahoo! Bookmarks. If the above image is a true reflection of what Yahoo thinks about their products, then they should seriously start looking at the usage statistics.

Closing Delicious could be one of the biggest mistakes made by Yahoo and there is no way that regular users are going to take this news lightly. I for one am appalled at the way Yahoo is dealing with this.
