Gowalla confirms acquisition by Facebook

As reported on the weekend by CNN, now here’s the official announcement:

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.

If you’re still looking for it, here’s how to delete your Gowalla account. It’s not like they wouldn’t have a backup of your data, but if it makes you feel better.
