Social Bookmarking: Is Yahoo Planning to Shutdown Delicious (and Other Sites)?

Update: Confirmed: It's All Over For Delicious, Yahoo Will Shutdown Service

UPDATED POST HERE

When the history of Web 2.0 is written it's very likely that it will include a chapter about delicious, the social bookmarking service that at one time was extremely popular. Even today, we regularly see Delicious mentioned (at least in the library world) as a place to store/share/find useful web sites.

Today, the talk of the web is that Yahoo is apparently planning to shutdown Delicious and several other properties.

Yahoo held an all hands meeting today and someone took a picture of this slide that shows Yahoo is planning to shutdown a few well-known (at least at one time) brands including Delicious. They're listed on the slide in the "sunset" column.

+ Delicous

+ AltaVista

+ AllTheWeb

+ Yahoo Bookmarks

+ Yahoo Buzz

+ MyBlogLog

Other services/tools including Upcoming, Fire Eagle, and Yahoo People Search will merge with other properties.

Hat Tip and Thanks: @waxpancake

Update: TechCrunch has now posted an item. It reports that there have been "rumors" about of the entire Delicous team being let go in layoffs that took place at Yahoo earlier this week.
