RIP Delicious: A Bittersweet End to a Tasty Website Business News | December 17, 2010 | By Aaron Schoenberger

Delicious Shutting Down
Even though it’s Friday and should be a fun day, I’m unfortunately here as a carrier of bad news. With Yahoo! Inc’s recent layoffs, the company has decided to axe a few of their web properties including the popular social bookmarking website Delicious.

Delicious sports around 350,000 active users per month, and the burial has caused quite a rift on the web. Devoted members are worried their bookmarks will disappear, which took loads of time compiling, and they’ve taken to the streets (well, social channels).

As tasty as the website may be, it’s time to say goodbye. What are your thoughts on the closure? And, do you have any final words? Hit me up on Twitter: @TheSchoenberger.
