Answer: Delicious, formerly del.icio.us, pronounced “delicious” is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks. The site was founded by Joshua Schachter in 2003 and acquired by Yahoo! in 2005. It has more than five million users and 150 million bookmarked URLs. It is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. The site uses a system called a tag to connect and locate their bookmarks. A combined view of everyone’s bookmarks with a given tag is available; for instance, the URL “http://delicious.com/tag/wiki” displays all of the most recent links tagged “wiki”. Its collective nature makes it possible to view bookmarks added by similar-minded users.
