Yahoo today announced taht they have acquired Del.icio.us, the extremely popular communal bookmarking service.
Posting on the Yahoo Search Blog, Jeremy Zawodny comments:
I’d like to change the non-committal answer I gave to this: “Yes! And as of today, del.icio.us is part of the Yahoo! family.”
As Joshua writes, the del.icio.us team will soon be working in close proximity to their fraternal twin, Flickr. And just like we’ve done with Flickr, we plan to give del.icio.us the resources, support, and room it needs to continue growing the service and community. Finally, don’t be surprised if you see My Web and del.icio.us borrow a few ideas from each other in the future.
This just illustrates how committed Yahoo are to the Web 2.0 philosophy.
