Is Yahoo! shutting down Del.icio.us?

We use Del.icio.us for social bookmarking and have been fans for some time - but the rumours have been rife about whether Yahoo! will be shutting it down.

This excellent post from Alexia Tsotsis has an update from the Delicious blog, saying:

“No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.”

Good news.
