Del.icio.us, a beloved social bookmarking service, is being killed off as part of some "organizational streamlining" by Yahoo and we're already in tears. Here's some advice on how to preserve the memories—and bookmarks—we have with the service.
Simply head over to this link and you'll be offered the option to export all your bookmarks—you'll be provided with the option of including your tags and notes as well.
Formerly called del.icio.us, the site was founded in 2003 and acquired by Yahoo in 2005. It boasted more than 5.3 million users and 180 million unique bookmarked URLs by the end of 2008. Once one of the Web's top social sites, Delicious is still accessed by some 350,000 people per month, but it doesn't seem to fit in Yahoo's future plans.
Once you're done exporting those bookmarks and mourning, you can check out this list for some alternative bookmark management tools. [TechCrunch]
