Was I excited when I saw that Del.icio.us, one of my favorite social bookmarking tools, had undergone a major overhaul. Besides the aesthetic changes, they also have added some new AMAZING features.
I’ve outlined some of my favorite new features for you below. If you are a current Del.icio.us user, you have to take a look for yourself to really appreciate the improvements. If you don’t currently use social bookmarking, please watch this video from the folks at CommonCraft to see how this Web 2.0 tool will be beneficial for you.
The improvements that immediately caught my attention were:
You can now search a Bundle!! – I use Bundles in my professional development workshops, but I was frustrated that they were not searchable, so this is something that I was really hoping for.
They’ve changed the way the number of times something is tagged is noted. It’s now very obvious how many times something has been tagged. See the screen shot below.
Really know the people in your Network. See their Top 10 Tags in their sidebar and if you’re confused by their funky username – assign them a nickname.
Check out the video from the Delicious Blog Flickr Photo Stream and make sure to note that Delicious has officially changed it’s domain.
