Youtube-Founders buy Delicious

Die ursprünglichen Gründer von Youtube, Chad Hurley und Steve Chen, haben Delicious gekauft. Der Bookmark-Service wird Teil ihrer neuen Firma Avos, die Übertragung der Daten erfolgt im OptIn-Verfahren.

When will AVOS officially start running Delicious?
We anticipate Delicious in its current form will be available until approximately July 2011. By agreeing to AVOS's terms of service upfront, you will allow us to move your data when the time comes to transfer control to AVOS.

What does AVOS plan to do with Delicious?
AVOS plans to continue the service that users have come to know and love and by working with the community, make the site even easier and more fun to save, share and discover the web's "tastiest" content.

Will AVOS maintain the Delicious service with all of its functionality?
Yes, that's the plan.
