Facebook Acquires Nextstop The Local Recommendation Service

Facebook has acquired Nextstop, Which is a service focuses on creating beautiful and dead-simple guides of local destinations and hotspots. Nextstop also provides a range of community features such as badges and guide recommendations.

In an announcement on its website they stated:

Nextstop.com will be shutting down on September 1, 2010, but we want to make sure that the amazing guides that Nextstoppers have created live on.

If you are an existing user, you can continue to use Nextstop for the next two months and can use our export tools to export your contributions to Picasa Web Albums, Google Maps, or download a set of PDF or HTML files for your guides. We hope with these options you’ll be able to retain all the work you’ve put into Nextstop guides, albeit in a new form. You must export your guides by September 1.

Additionally, the company plans on releasing their database of places under creative commons in the coming weeks.

Do you think Facebook is taking the location game very seriously through Nextstop acquisition?
