Gowalla to close as Facebook acquires business

Location-based social network Gowalla is to close at the end of January, having been acquired by Facebook.

Co-founders Josh Williams and Scott Raymond will join the Facebook team. User data isn’t being transferred; Gowalla says it intends to provide an easy way for users to export this information.

In a blog post, co-founder Josh Williams said “We know how much many of you loved Gowalla. It’s been the highlight of our lives as we’ve built it with your help over the past two years. As we move forward, we hope some of the inspiration behind Gowalla — a fun and beautiful way to share your journey on the go — will live on at Facebook.”
