Yahoo shopping Delicious to Digg?

 

First generation social media are falling by the wayside.

Kevin Rose: Yahoo Contacted Digg To See If We Wanted To Take Over Delicious

It looks like Yahoo has been looking for a home for Delicious for some time now. On his Diggnation web show this week, Digg founder Kevin Rose said that Yahoo contacted Digg to see if the company would be interested in taking over Delicious prior to when an internal slide leaked indicating Yahoo wanted to get rid if it and before the December layoffs (which would put the time period at early December/late November). In the video, Rose addresses this around the 36 minute mark.
