Gowalla’s founder Josh Williams:
Gowalla, as a service, will be winding down at the end of January. We plan to provide an easy way to export your Passport data, your Stamp and Pin data (along with your legacy Item data), and your photos as well. Facebook is not acquiring Gowalla’s user data.
I’m happy for everyone who’s happy about Facebook acquiring (I hate that term) Gowalla. For me, the best part of this news is that Facebook won’t get their hands on my data and that there’ll be easy ways to extract it. If the Foursquare guys are watching, now’s a good time to work on those import tools.
