Diigo or Delicious for Beginners?

Experiencing eLearning

One question came up earlier in the discussion that I want to explore a little deeper: if you’re introducing social bookmarking to complete beginniners, would Diigo or Delicious be a better choice?In Delicious is so simple and obviously useful.

Delicious Upgrade Only Skin Deep

I personally think delicious is a great tool and I often describe it's use in presentations and workshops. My claim back then was the Yahoo MyWeb has some features that made it better for a lot of corporate users, and while I hate to argue for its use, the fact that two years later after Yahoo acquired del.icio.us (delicious), they've not addressed these issues is a surprise. It recently went through an upgrade that improved the look and performance.
