Report: Facebook Acquiring Gowalla [allthingsd.com]
Even Gowalla CEO Josh Williams isn’t pretending a deal for Facebook to buy the location-sharing company isn’t happening, as you can read below in an email he sent to his investors.

Both companies declined to comment on a story on Friday and over the weekend.
Subject: Rumors and speculation
CNN just broke the news that Gowalla has been acquired by Facebook. This story was leaked from an unknown souurce.
The ink on the deal is not dry, so our holding pattern is that we do not comment on rumors and speculation.

Gowalla Acquired by Facebook [blog.gowalla.com]
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!

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.

Holly COW alert on this one. Facebook buying Passort data!

Seriously folks, if you can't keep your Passport data to yourself, don't go online. At all.

Not the first thing that would come to my mind when facebook/google comes calling. That's right up there with 'it's for the children'.

They got a big paycheck. Good for them, but let's not pretend that this was anything other than a ka-ching moment :).
