Annual Report – How Delicious was your 2013?

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?

The Delicious Android App is here!

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!

Download the Android app from the Play Store here.

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 feedback@delicious.com.

Ten Years of Delicious – Same Ingredients, Brand New Flavor

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.

Music by Andre Burgos

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.

What’s changed?

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.

What hasn’t?

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!

Announcing the Delicious iPad app!

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!

If you have any feedback, don’t hesitate to reach out on Twitter @Delicious, or send us an email to feedback@delicious.com.

Official Delicious iPhone App!

We are excited to announce that the official Delicious iPhone app is now available for download in the App Store:

https://itunes.apple.com/app/delicious-official-app/id580295142

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 support@delicious.com.

Hope you enjoy Delicious on-the-go!

Delicious – Features Update

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 feedback@delicious.com!

We’ll have more to say soon here on our blog about the exciting developments we’ve been working on – so stay tuned!

Stacks go social

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.

Collaborate on stacks

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.


Comment and suggest on stacks

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.

Stack responses

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.

Private stacks

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.
