Another year has come and gone – and what a year it’s been!
Delicious celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a complete relaunch of the site, and we made it easier than ever to save from anywhere with new apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android. But before we look to 2014, let’s take a look back at what made 2013 so delicious.
We’ve generated a personalized year-in-review report for every user on Delicious, visualizing bookmarking activity over the past year as an interactive infographic. How many bookmarks did you save in 2013? Were the links you saved popular site-wide, or were you a lone wolf? What do your annual statistics say about you?
Head to your Delicious profile and click 2013 annual report to view your statistics, or explore the reports of any user by clicking the button on any profile.
Two weeks ago, we re-launched Delicious with a brand new design and a renewed commitment to making Delicious better than ever. Since then, we’ve continued to make improvements to the new design and have also released our first official Android app!
With the Android app you can save, find, and sort your links from anywhere. Easily edit tags and comments by pressing and holding links, and find interesting content saved by your friends in the Network feed.
The app integrates into the Android universal share menu in browsers and other apps for quick and easy bookmarking. From any webpage, go to the Share menu, then hit Save to Delicious. You can add tags and save your link without ever leaving the original app.
We’ve also updated our iPhone app to match our new Android app. Download or update here.
We want to thank everyone in the Delicious community for your great feedback on the new website. We’ve been implementing your ideas into the site on a daily basis. If you have anything to say about the new design or our apps, we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re excited to announce the release of the brand new Delicious!
Delicious first launched in September of 2003 (then known as del.icio.us), and to celebrate our ten year anniversary we’ve rebuilt Delicious from the ground up. It’s faster, easier to use, and a whole lot more… well, delicious.

We listened to your feedback and improved every aspect of the site — adding new features, improving current ones, and even bringing back a few old favorites.
With ten years of bookmarking comes ten years of community-curated links, tags, comments, and bundles — an extremely powerful resource that gets more valuable with every single save. We’re harnessing the nearly one billion links on Delicious into an unparalleled tool for search and discovery.
Quite a bit! The entire site has been streamlined into a single-column layout for faster navigation without any clutter, and we’ve made some other improvements.
- Tags and tag bundles are accessible from the top of every page.
- Links can be searched or filtered by tag with a single click.
- Double click any link to add it to your collection or edit one of your existing bookmarks.
- The Discover feed is now personalized. See relevant links from your feed when you connect with Twitter.
Delicious is still all about you. Your links, your tags, your rules. We’ve dusted off the digital archives and brought back a few of oft-requested features, including:
- Comprehensive tagging tools, with the ability to add tags to multiple links at once.
- Search tags and sort results by recent or popular.
- Stats for how often a bookmark has been saved and who was the first to add each link.
- Your own personal tag cloud.
What’s to come?
We’re only just getting started. This new design is a direct response to responses from the Delicious community, so we absolutely still want to hear your feedback. In the coming months, we’ll be consistently pushing out new updates, features, apps (yes, Android), browser extensions, and more — so stay tuned!
Thanks to everyone in the community for ten great years of bookmarking.
Here’s to many more!
We’re excited to announce that our iPad app is live in the App Store! Download it here.
The app mirrors the style of our official iPhone app, but is designed specifically for the larger screen size, including an expanded web browser view.
You can search your collection, add new bookmarks, and browse through links the community and your network of friends are saving. Enjoy the benefits of Delicious on the go, and never struggle to find a link again!
We are excited to announce that the official Delicious iPhone app is now available for download in the App Store:
The visual style and user experience of the app mirrors that of the new Delicious site design currently being previewed at demo.delicious.com. Not only can users search and add links from their own collections with the app, but they can also search through links being saved by the community and their networks in real-time.
This is the only official iPhone app released for Delicious, and it is completely free to download. Support for Android and tablets are on our near-term roadmap as well.
We value your input in the features and products we develop, so please send any feedback to email@example.com.
Hope you enjoy Delicious on-the-go!
Our team here at Delicious has been working hard on a number of exciting developments that we can’t wait to share with the community! We’ll have more to say soon about what’s to come, but for now, here are a few updates we wanted to let you know about:
Introducing the Delicious-Facebook Connector
We know finding links you’ve shared on Facebook can be a pain, which is why we’re thrilled to announce the introduction of our new Facebook Connector for Delicious! Much like the Twitter Connector we rolled out in March, our new connector imports every link you’ve ever shared on your wall, and can even maintain the original privacy settings given to your links on Facebook!
The Facebook Connector can be found on the sources page of your account settings. We can’t wait for you guys to try it out!
Consolidating tags and stacks
We introduced stacks last year as a visually rich way to think about your links and we’ve been blown away by the amazing content you’ve created. But given the upcoming launch of new products from Delicious’ parent company, AVOS, and our focus on simplifying the Delicious site, we realized the value of stacks is limited for our users moving forward.
For this reason, we’ve decided to simplify how users organize links on Delicious by consolidating stacks into tags. Users will no longer be able to create stacks on Delicious starting in early August, 2012.
So what does this mean for existing stacks?
- You will not lose your links.
- All stacks will be converted automatically into tags. Stack titles will transition into new tag names, and will be applied to all links currently in a stack.
- Stack-specific descriptions, categories, comments, link order, and stack followers will not be included as part of the migration.
- Your existing links, tags, and notes outside of stacks will not be affected.
- More details on the conversion process are available here.
These changes are a direct result of feedback from our community. We welcome all input – good or bad – so please continue sharing your thoughts, comments, or questions with us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We’ll have more to say soon here on our blog about the exciting developments we’ve been working on – so stay tuned!
Stacks are a great way to organize and present the content you’re passionate about and add your voice on why it matters. Now we’re letting others join the fun – stacks just got social.
With the latest Delicious update, you can now:
- Collaborate on stacks
- Comment on stacks and suggest new links for stacks.
- Build stack responses
- Create private stacks for yourself or a group
To learn more about each, please read on.
If you build stacks to share with a group, why not invite them to join the fun? Invite others to edit and add links to your stack for a joint compilation of the content you want to share with the world.
Found a stack about the most Atrocious Sweaters? You can now join in the conversation, commenting on individual links or the stack as a whole.
It’s also possible to suggest new links to help the stack creator improve their stack. Stack creators can choose to accept or reject suggestions to quickly and easily include them in their stack.
Why stop at commenting on a stack on when you can create a response? Stack responses allow you create a new stack of links that’s tied to the original. It lets you add your own voice and show your support, add a different point of view or just plain disagree with the original stack creator. So go ahead and create a response to educate the community on how Sweaters can be Stylish.
Stacks created as a response also include a reference to the original stack.
You might not always want the full community to see what you’re sharing, which is why we have enabled Private Stacks. You no longer have to publish a stack, instead invite only the people you want to collaborate with and keep it to yourselves. Share links around a project at work, research a new kitchen or share favorite engagement rings with your yet-to-be-announced fiancee.
Delicious has always been a social platform, and these new stack features make social an even bigger part of what we’re about, allowing communities to collect and display their passions from across the web.
New email updates
While Delicious has feeds for most of the content that people add, not everyone likes to use a Feed Reader. Email can be more convenient for some notifications.
To provide you with choice in how you receive information, we’ve now added optional email notifications for some key events. For example, now when you follow a stack, you can be automatically emailed whenever the stack owner adds a new link.
You have full control over these emails and can turn notifications on and off on the settings page.
Farewell “kitten man”
A persistent stack image on the home page over the last two weeks has been one we affectionately refer to internally as “Kitten Man”.
We’ve improved the way we select stacks to make it more dynamic which means there are now newer, fresher stacks for you to discover on a more frequent basis. Sadly “Kitten Man” no longer holds top billing, however if you can’t get enough you’ll find his stack here.
Finally, Happy Holidays!
From all here at Delicious, we wish you safe holidays and a Happy New Year. Here’s to a New Year full of cialis online without prescription Delicious treats!

We’ve just pushed a new release which will resolve most of the performance issues we’ve been experiencing over the last couple of weeks.
To complete this update, we will be rebooting the database servers between 8 pm and 10 pm PST on Thursday, December 22nd (4 am-6 am GMT on Dec. 23rd). This will cause the site to be slow and potentially unresponsive for short periods while caches rebuild.
All of the servers have been upgraded and an additional caching layer (to serve content more quickly from memory, rather than having to look for it on disk) has now been implemented.
We’ve also expanded the existing caches with more machines.
Along with the performance changes, we’ve also included several small fixes, including tightening up the white space on the link lists further, selected text is once again added to the description when using the bookmarklet and other minor changes.
