/// Delicious Announces A New Design With A Focus On Community, Speed And Mobile
Just when you thought that the site Delicious was dead and gone, it’s back…again. Since being acquired by AVOS, headed up by YouTube co-founders, the site has had a few revamps. It was purchased from Yahoo! last year, and at the time, Yahoo! said this about that group: “As creators of the largest online video platform, they have firsthand experience enabling millions of users to share their experiences with the world. They are committed to running and improving Delicious going forward.”
The service was, and is, all about collecting and sharing links to things that you find interesting. Yes, this was also the premise of Digg, and kind of the premise of Reddit, but the Delicious team isn’t giving up. Digg didn’t either after it sold to Betaworks, so sure…why the hell not?
Today, the team has announced a brand new demo site to get a taste of the near-future for Delicious. It’s clean, fast and goes back to the Delicious roots in a way. The company says that it’s not complete, but wants your feedback. The site is definitely more user driven. When Yahoo! purchased it and half-announced its sunsetting, the community cried foul. AVOS saved the day.
With a focus on discovering things and not just saving links, you might actually find some interesting news on the new Delicious.
