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.
  2. 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.

      I've been using Refind for a week or so and I have read so many good articles. The quality of the posts Refind finds is amazing.

      Sometimes the amount of good links results in lower productivity :/ I'm working on this.

      Kudos on the makers, this is a very useful tool.

      Amazing app, keeps getting better. Superb design aesthetics, works in every browser. I miss a dedicated iphone/android app for refind.

  4. 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!! ;)

      I used Papaly. It was very good web app, actually still very good. But Papaly has not updated for a long time, and no recent sharing their social accounts. Probably, developer team burned the project.

      I used papaly for such a long time and it's a great bookmarking platform. If it had the ability to view the layout in cards and more customization options in general I would still use it but it is still top 5 i've ever used.

      I've enjoyed every aspect of this product, even at its early stages. I've used this to create quick layouts of my blog posts and will use Additor for my studies. I'll keep thinking of the pros and cons. (Phoenixfirelotus / ElegantAdventure)

    • I really like, because it is perfect, it's the best way to keep looking for new boowmarks or other links and keep in order & orgazined.

    Bookmark OS 2.0

    Powerful bookmark manager with AI and a browser-based GUI

    Tom Marino

    Doesn't have the pure social features, but you can share folders. Easy of GUI is the sell here
    • Pros (cont'd): I am using it with Opera also. (I found buttons at BookmarkOS, while using Opera, that I could move onto the Opera bar.)

      Cons (cont'd): The Firefox extension giving access to the BookmarkOS desktop opens a fixed window that is too small for my preference. I removed the extension from Firefox and made the BookmarkOS desktop my homepage in Firefox. (I got rid of the extraneous, intermediate, "bookmarks" folder from the upload.) The folder names start with whole numbers that order them and ahead of them come a few individual, much-used bookmarks (like Google Advanced Search) with names starting with, for example, 0.1 to put them ahead of the folders, just where I want them.

      Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

    Bookmarking for developers

    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 :-)

      Downloaded. Couldn't even try it stopped by request to register account. If every minor Chrome extension would require registration for usage, it would be nightmare. There are OneTab that does similar job very good with no need to provide an email.

      This one looks like hustling to get your contacts and spam you.

      Downloaded the product, looks great and perfect for a big problem I have had for years with bookmarks and then later realized that my brownser home page had change to toby?!?! what?? not cool. If you will change a setting in my browser you HAVE to let me know, and if you did let me know then it was not clear AT ALL.

    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).
