Yahoo acquires del.icio.us

December 11, 2005

Greg Yardley reports that del.icio.us is to join the Yahoo Family, adding to its stable of Web2.0 products such as Flickr. As Greg writes, hopefully this will mean they get much more stable servers to cope with the demand, but that Yahoo won’t impose their logins…

Rumour has it that the purchase price was around US$30m (£17m), valuing each of their 300,000 user’s bookmarks at $100. They’re definitely paying for the community not the technology.
