Delicious (URL del.icio.us) was a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks. The site was founded by Joshua Schachter and Peter Gadjokov in 2003 and acquired by Yahoo in 2005. By the end of 2008, the service claimed more than 5.3 million users and 180 million unique bookmarked URLs. Yahoo sold Delicious to AVOS Systems in April 2011, and the site relaunched in a “back to beta” state on September 27 that year. In May 2014, AVOS sold the site to Science Inc. In January 2016 Delicious Media, a new alliance, reported it had assumed control of the service.*
On June 1, 2017, Delicious was acquired by Pinboard, and the Delicious network will be discontinued in favor of Pinboard’s paid subscription-based service.
Due to that we decided to remove del.icio.us from our list of MashShare supported social networks with the next version of the Social Networks add-on
