Social bookmarking website Delicious has announced it is to undergo a major revamp next month in a bid to improve functionality and tempt back lost users.
Delicious was bought by YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley who intends to implement a back to basics approach by making the process of saving links, tagging posts and searching more streamlined.
In addition a Delicious iPhone app is also in the works in a bid to improve accessibility whilst staff have been boosted from a skeleton crew of five to around 50 people currently beavering away on the site.
Speaking to Mashable Hurley said: “We wanted to reposition Delicious to a new set of users and hopefully jump start growth. As we’ve learned throughout this experience, it’s hard to just introduce that stuff right off the bat with an existing community.”
