Science Inc. Buys Delicious From Avos Systems

by Brad MerrillMay 8, 2014

delicious-logoSocial bookmarking service Delicious has been acquired by Science Inc. from Avos Systems, a company run by YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Science Inc., a tech advisory firm run by former Myspace chief Michael Jones, confirmed the deal in a blog post, stating that Delicious will “be the cornerstone property in our burgeoning data content group” and that “the understanding of trending content is unparalleled,” thanks to its billion daily links.

Delicious users have no reason to fear the demise of the service, though. Science Inc.’s Mike Macadaan said that “in the near future, our focus will be ensuring that Delicious and its users continue to have a quality and uninterrupted experience.”

In a blog post by Delicious, the company said users may notice no difference in the service at all—except maybe fewer ads.
