Del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site. It was founded in 2003 by Joshua Schachter and eventually bought by Yahoo in 2005. More than three million users are already in the net and more than a hundred million sites have already been bookmarked.
This site works with non-hierarchical keyword categorization based on the usage of tags. Users are free to navigate through other user’s URLs and tags to find new sites or just take a look into other bookmarked URL lists.
Del.icio.us has also a list with the most popular and viewed bookmarked pages, which helps memes to expand fast. Besides, its use is very simple, as well as its interface and free use have made the site the most well-known site of bookmarked lists. Moreover, the very name of this page is one of the most famous ones, and lines like delicious.com or delicio.us will automaticly redirect you to the del.icio.us webpage.
