Yahoo Buys Del.icio.us

I’m a little worried about this.

Joshua Schachter, the founder of Del.icio.us, confirmed a posting on the New York-based start-up’s site that the company had been acquired by Yahoo. A Yahoo representative confirmed that the agreement to buy Del.icio.us had closed on Friday.

Neither party disclosed financial terms.

“We are joining forces to build my vision of creating a way for people to remember things together,” Schachter told Reuters in a phone interview. “It is a shared-memory site.”

Del.icio.us provides a simple way for hundreds of thousands of Web users to share and categorize their favorite Web page bookmarks as Web pages.

you might notice that here, on this blog, we use both Flickr and Del.icio.us. I don\’t know if it\’s because Yahoo! has a really good team of people, but it\’s still a bit strange regardless…
