Delicious not to close but time to consider alternates

Yahoo has clarified their Delicious bookmarking service is not going the way of the dodo yet. It will remain online. While they look for a buyer. I couldn’t wait. I’ve made the switch to Diigo. Here’s a comparison with change-over instructions.

But Diigo aren’t the sole alternate. There are a number of paid and free alternates available. For more read GigaOM’s 5 Delicious Alternates which is where I decided there was no time like the present.

Another reason to choose Diigo was its easy book-market and specialized Google Chrome and Firefox tool bars. Adding links is sooo much easier than with Delicious.

After you signup and import your bookmarks, be prepared to wait. Seems so many worrywarts have changed providers that their data parsing operation is overloaded!
