    Dear Yahoo! Please, please, please do not dump Flickr. I really wish you’d put some focus there.

    Oh, and guess we can remove all those “powered by MyBlogLog” widgets, eh?

    Hmm, i guess this is why my SEO Book toolbar started showing OSE links over Yahoo links last month.

    @chiropractic I hope they keep Flickr, too.

    At further glance, I see NOTHING regarding Yahoo Local, they really had an opportunity there. Reviews by consumers may actually get popular someday. ;)

    Why would they shut down Delicious and MyBlogLog, they(personally) are great sites. The traffic(I thought) was always great…why shut down such good sites? I use them both on a monthly basis, along with a few of my friends. When will this happen? Hopefully they will give us more time in advance….

    Wow, Delicious. This is a big blow to librarians without budgets. Delicious is pretty much my catalog. Why did they buy it??? If they do drop it, I hope someone offers a similar alternative. I love Delicious and have amassed almost 3,000 bookmarks in 3 years for my small library.

    I would have to agree that taking Delicious open-source would be a major PITA. I’d hate to see it go way, as I see benefit from using it. Maybe someone will come forward with a viable offer to take it off their hands, if they decide not to support it any longer.

    By the way, Danny, OneTrueFan has been out in Beta for some time. I’ve been using it for at least three months.

    Not to panic yet. (Did swear and curse when I read this post)

    Unfortunately I’ve invested a lot into Delicious making it my Hub for bookmarking.
    I’ve invested 4 years. I’m hoping that other Social Bookmarking Platforms step up and create tools to transition to other plaforms.

    Somebody want to create Save Delicious on Facebook?

    Are you saying Yahoo is a Buzzkiller? ararar

    But seriously, Yahoo, if you are ‘sunsetting’ these properties, I will gladly take any or all of these off your ridiculously incompetent hands.

    Mr Irving needs to know when to bite his lip leaks happen just man up and grow a pair mate – for some one in company in trouble looking like a PITA/Crybaby is not a good way to position yourself if you need to find a new job.

    One of solutions for users would be to migrate to one of emerging social bookmarking services like Instapaper or ReadItLater. In case of first company use Delicous migration to Instapaper
