YouTube Founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen Preparing To Roll Out New Delicious UI Later This Year

Posted Sep 12, 2011

This past April YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen acquired link-sharing service Delicious.com from Yahoo! The two are prepared to launch a new version of Delicious.com later this year. Delicious is one of the most popular bookmarking services today. Delicious allows people to save and bookmark links from the Internet for future reference and organizing them using tags. Personally I am not a fan of Delicious as I like Google Bookmarks better.

Hurley and Chen said that they plan to overhaul the design of Delicious while still utilizing the tagging and link sharing system. The core of Delicious will remain the same. The new version of Delicious is expected to launch later this year. The new version of Delicious will have a major focus on advertising that uses the social data collected from link sharing.
