Yahoo nabs Del.Icio.Us?!

Reading this article on TechCrunch yesterday, it was revealed that (such a handy tool I might add!) is being bought out by Yahoo. Have they beaten Google to the punch or are they simply trying to follow in Google’s footsteps and buy up whatever is good on the internet?

Is there any need for Yahoo to acquire something like Could this be the key to serious success for Flickr, since Google were tapping up Riya to be bought? (A previous post of mine).

From the blog...

We’re proud to announce that has joined the Yahoo! family. Together we’ll continue to improve how people discover, remember and share on the Internet, with a big emphasis on the power of community. We’re excited to be working with the Yahoo! Search team – they definitely get social systems and their potential to change the web. (We’re also excited to be joining our fraternal twin Flickr!)

    Can’t see there being too much change to be honest, bar integration with the Yahoo brand. Some clever logos and ideas already appearing around the net, be interesting to see if anything arises out of it!

    yeah it will.. maybe yahoo base their ranking system on it.. because think of it the more bookmarks someone has etc. etc.
