Gowalla has confirmed that they are going to shut down their operations at the end of next month.
The company founders are joining Facebook. The deal does not involve access to user data. Gowalla users would get tools to export everything they have on their servers in the coming days.
Gowalla said that they are impressed with the recent developments at Facebook and where they are going and they want to be a part of that.
The company founders said:
About two months ago, my co-founder Scott and I attended F8. We were blown away by Facebook’s new developments. A few weeks later Facebook called, and it became clear that the way for our team to have the biggest impact was to work together. So we’re excited to announce that we’ll be making the journey to California to join Facebook!
