    Delighted to see Delicious back in play. It’s a great service, and was sadly neglected by Yahoo.

    New Delicious looks good and good to use also. I liked it very much. And Google+ is giving out some new apps to its users which is most welcome by all of us….

    Thanks for your feedback on the new Delicious!  Yes, it looks like Google+ is becoming more interesting.  I wonder how we’ll be spending our time at the beginning of next year, things are changing quite a bit now.

    For bloggers and content creators this is
    good news. As most of us know creating good quality content is only half
    of the game, if you want to create a brand around your blog and niche.
    Having your content shared across many platforms creates a dynamic viral
    presence that just can’t be ignored.

    I’m
    glad to see Delicious is back in the game as well as to learn how much
    traffic we get from smart phones. The face of social media is changing
    at a rapid pace and those who keep up with these climate shifts will undoubtedly create the biggest brands.

    I’m looking forward to what Google+ is able to do. Will they be successful in drawing our eyes away from Facebook?
    The Stacks feature from Delicious looks pretty cool also!

    I too am glad to see Delicious is back!  Also I think Google+ is a great syndication tool.  I love social media and am grateful to you for giving me more ideas how to grow.  Thank you, Donna Merrill
