San Mateo, CA – November 9, 2011 - AVOS Systems, which recently re-launched Delicious.com and is led by YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, has acquired link-saving service Trunk.ly.
Trunk.ly was founded in December 2010 by Tim Bull and Alex Dong, and is focused on making the bookmarking process more automated and supported by intuitive search. Trunk.ly collects every link that users share or “like” on websites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, and stores them in one place to make them easy to find.
“It became clear from the first discussion with Trunk.ly’s founders that our visions for the future of bookmarking and discovery were closely aligned,” said Chad Hurley, CEO of AVOS. “Their technology and insights will accelerate link-saving and searching capabilities in Delicious.”
“We’re excited to join this stellar team and apply our bookmarking innovations to help Delicious users discover and collect the web,” said Tim Bull, co-founder of Trunk.ly.
