Update: Sources peg the acquisition price at around $30-35 million….similar to the size of the Flickr deal. If this is the case, it’s pretty rich. I don’t recall the size of del.icio.us’s user base, but I doubt it’s 250,000, which was the reported user base of flickr when it was acquired. If it *is* that size, then wow, it’s grown much faster than I realized!
Second Update: OK, now I have *more* sources that say yes, the deal is similar to Flickr, but *that* deal was not really at 30-35 million, it was more like $17-19 million.
And – this is simply amazing to me – del.icio.us has 300,000 users. Holy sh*t.
