Springing Forward at Delicious

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog recently, but after adding a number of new updates and features over the past few months, we wanted to break the silence and let you know what we’ve been working on.

One noticeable new feature is that you can now sign in via Twitter or Facebook. Login with a single click and immediately start adding links.

But that’s not the only benefit of connecting your social accounts. We can also automatically pull in links you’ve shared (or favorited on Twitter), meaning you’ll never have to dig through your feed to find a link again – they will all be waiting for you on your Delicious account, indexed and searchable. We’ve also introduced the Friend Finder to help you find and follow the people you know.

Another big community request was that we put the user who first saved a link back in the link details pane. We’re happy to report that this “first saver” attribution is now live and prominently displayed on every link added to the site.

We’ve also made these small improvements:

- Fixed bug where public tags were showing up in autocomplete when tagging.
- Put “Add to Delicious” button back on the Tools page so you can add it to your website and blog posts for readers to use.
- Shaved one second off load times across the site.
- Optimized the bookmarklet to load faster than ever.

These are just a few of the many enhancements currently in the works, so expect new features and fixes soon!

If you have any feedback about what we’ve released so far, or have suggestions for features you would like to see added in the future, please email us at feedback@delicious.com. We’d love to hear from you!
