Delicious Is Not Shutting Down, But Yahoo! Wants To Spin Them Off

Posted Dec 17, 2010

A rumor spread around yesterday that Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) was going to shut down Delicious, but they are seriously considering spinning them off instead. “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,” said Delicious in a blog post. Some people are worried about all of the data that they have stored in Delicious. Delicious said not to worry about exporting anything. There are some export options if you choose to take your data out.
