Alternatives to Delicious

Posted by skatsh on December 30, 2010

With the news stories about the possible demise (or sale) of Delicious, many of us have been seeking alternatives.  The recommendations I’ve read so far are Google Bookmarks, Diigo, Pinboard, and Mister Wong.  I’ve been exploring Google Bookmarks, only because I would think it would have longevity.  Importing bookmarks from Delicious to Google Bookmarks works fine, but there’s no option for a tag cloud, which makes for a long list, even if you’re sparing with your labels (Google’s version of tags).  I do hope Delicious stays around in some capacity.  Regardless, it might be a good time to check out CCML’s Delicious bookmarks and the NNLM Bookmarks.
