Gowalla checks out

By on 12 March 2012

 After about 5 years in business, Gowalla has closed its doors.

Of course its not all bad news, Gowalla was acquired by Facebook in December of 2011. While most expected that Facebook would ultimately shut Gowalla down and keep whatever technology, assests and user information they acquired, it is still surprising to see it go so quickly.

I’m sure the good folks at Foursquare will not argue with the outcome here, but this does leave us to wonder what Facebook is up to and how soon we will see the fruits of this acquisition.
