Delicious Hack: How to send messages via Delicious

Posted on: July 17, 2006

I am a keen user of delicious. Everyday, i discover lots of same-mind people and lots of inspiring links there. I can not discover same things at anywhere else. Delicious has a network function, too. By adding people you like to your network, find out their newest bookmark constantly. For example, my bookmarks are usually on marketing topics. Add me to your delicious network to subscribe my bookmarks.

The only disadvantage of delicious network is its one side structure. There is no way to connect people you like on delicious. But, there is lot of people i want to thank or i want to just say hi. I found a small delicious hack to send messages people you want to connect. My first delicious message is to my biggest inspiration, Steve Rubel. Let’s start How-Tos.

1. Find Delicious ID of people you want to send message via delicious. And add them to your network

2. Write your message at, them create your messages URL


3. Finally, bookmark this page on delicious and add tag of “for:DeliciousID”. On this example my tag is for:steverubel


Are not there any alternative way to send messages to Steve. If we know his mail address, of course there are. But, even we know his mail address, message is medium’s itself, is not it? I am sure a new and innovative messaging medium is much more effective then usual ways.

hey, that’s pretty neat! you should probably note that unless you mark it as “private” and give the recipient the key, anything you write on can and probably will be indexed by google.

You’re right Dave
And i dont think people’d write such a private message if they fear to be seen by public

By the way, on you don’t always need to set a key. Just check the “make it private” box and leave the key field empty.

This way, it won’t be password secured but the url will be private and unless someone already doesn’t know about it, its pretty hard to guess.

[…] Update:  I just read Steve Rubel’s post, “Reinventing the Pitch Letter with Delicious” which could also have been titled, “Spamming Journalists with Delicious”, where he describes a clever hack to send journalists messages or a pitch letter via without knowing a specific email address.

The for: predicate is a useful standard by, but the downside is that it isn’t public.

I described this basic approach over a year ago with the tipster network, with the idea of standardizing how links/tipcs can be sent to A-List bloggers or publications. I sent it to an A-List professor whom I had met before… and he ended up revealing how little he actually knew about technology by not getting it. Oh well. Better was a response from a peer who’s a seasoned Internet consultant: “Wow. You’ve just killed the A-List.” After all, reading an A-Lister’s inbox would be just as useful as reading the A-Lister’s blog

I believe’s sister site Yahoo! MyWeb 2.0 has a similar function built right in.

I can’t decide which I like better., Yahoo! MyWeb or Furl.

So, I decided not to decide.

I prefer my method: using a combination of “do not share” and “for:”, then deleting the bookmark.

That’s really cool, thanks for sharing.


pretty good

Thanks for this, I am not an avid user of any social bookmarking site, I just have not got into it yet. You have opened my eyes and changed that.
