Gowalla was a location checkin silo that operated from 2007 to 2012. It is functionally similar to Foursquare but with a unique design aesthetic that won it loyal fans. It was acquired by Facebook[1] and unceremoniously euthanised soon after, despite their cheerful announcement:

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be making the journey to California to join Facebook.[2]
