Gowalla the missing link for International Check-Ins on Facebook

August 18, 2010 2 comments

For the time being it looks like Gowalla may be the only way for users to check-in to international locations on Facebook. Impatient international users could be big news for Gowalla’s growth in the short run.

Interesting… Using @Gowalla may be the only way to add a check-in to Facebook Places for international users for a while.

Gowalla + Facebook Places

August 18, 2010 Leave a comment

Looks like Gowalla is going to be integrating with the much hyped Facebook Places. More to come on this soon I hope.

Here’s all we know so far:

Update: TechCrunch coverage: http://techcrunch.com/2010/08/18/facebook-places-gowalla/

Update – August 18, 2010 – 10:54pm PST: Looks like the integration will go live tomorrow:

Starting tomorrow, Gowalla check-ins you chose to post to Facebook will automatically be shared as check-ins—not simply a status update. 🙂

New Feature: Like a Spot on Facebook

April 21, 2010 2 comments

Ben Dodson and Jo Carter pointed me towards the new integration of the Facebook ‘Like’ feature on all the Spots on Gowalla. All this really does is keep a count of all the Gowalla users who Like a Spot and add a link on your Facebook profile back to the Gowalla Spot page. Nothing revolutionary, but Gowalla likely sees it as a way to increase awareness via Facebook.

Some screenshots of the process:
