Delicious is shutting down. What should I use instead?

Now that Delicious has been acquired by Pinboard and will be shut down, what should I use instead? I'm looking for a usable (powerful & visually appealing) social bookmarking service.

    Social bookmarking for introverts

    Is Pinboard powerful? Yes. Is it visually appealing? Not really, but I think you should at least give it serious consideration because I think it's the best option for bookmarking.

    Smart bookmark manager

    I've been using Raindrop in addition to Pinboard as alternative to Pocket because I wanted something a bit more robust for short term storage. I'm only using the free service at the moment, but I'm considering paying for a subscription. Arguably not as powerful as Pinboard, but it satisfies the visual requirement. There's an easy drag and drop web interface. You can create separate folders and tags for your bookmarks. There's an applet that allows you to quickly save bookmarks.

    I have been searching (for what feels like my whole life) for a bookmarking product that I LOVE. RainDrop is what I currently use, and the best thing I've found. Biggest drawbacks for me have been support. I've asked questions (twitter/support ticket/email) and never heard back. I worry that the developer has or shortly will stop supporting it. Otherwise I love it.

    I have been using Refind for some time and it works like a charm. You might want to give it a try.

    Take better notes, your way

    I think a good app to check out for storing bookmarks is NoteLedge. It's a note-taking app, but you can save and organize bookmarks as well and I've personally found it easy to browse through my saved bookmarks that are stored in individual folders and I can access them from both my phone and my notebook, which is quite practical. NoteLedge is a fairly useful app in many instances, from taking notes and keeping them organized and synced to your devices, creating to-do lists and journaling. I use it mainly for note-taking and keeping my notes organized.

    I use NoteLedge for saving bookmarks for traveling blogs, so when I'm planning my next trip somewhere, I can easily find the blog/website that talks about the location I'm planning on going to, saving me lots of searching time.

    Pocket 7.0

    Save and read news, articles, & videos that fuel your mind

    It's a very powerful tool for saving websites, images, text, etc. To view later. It's very visually appealing and has a built-in reader for sites you save.

    Pocket is also really great to save articles for offline/online use. It has great social features too.

    I like Pocket a lot. You can easily add articles from their google chrome widget. It also recommends articles for you based on what you've saved.

    At the moment, it's mainly to keep up to date with the news on any topic you're interested in. Moving forward though, we plan on adding a ton of features that will ultimately make it more appealing for social bookmarking power users. And, it's 100% free!! ;)

    This is a bookmarking app I'm working on. It integrates with GitHub so your GitHub stars automatically get saved alongside your normal bookmarks, and you get a weekly (optional) email including updates to any repos you've starred. Besides the developer-focused features, it's also a solid option for ordinary bookmarking. It has folders, tags, browser extensions, an Android app, (iPhone app in progress) and perhaps most importantly, a sustainable revenue model. We plan on being in business for a long, long time.

    Better Than Bookmarks

    This one helps with both tabs and bookmarks. If you tend to have 100 tabs open all the time, like me, this could be your savior. I've been a HUGE fan of Delicious and tried many solutions to migrate to, and ultimately landed on this one. For now at least :-)

    I know it's not a bookmarking tool, but It works well. Tags help organizing, there's a 'link' post type that points back to the original, you don't have to accept limited formatting that is the case with Pinboard, Refind, and so on. A handy bookmarklet make capturing a link and selected text reasonably easy. But Tumblr lacks import and export (although third party export tools exist).
