Starting from 17th December, you can expect to see the check-in/posting and streams functions start to disappear from our apps and sites. These features were the defining element to our company 2 and 3 years ago, but we no longer believe they are sufficiently unique or defining to be our focus, so we are dropping them.
really not happy to read that. i liked brightkite a lot for exactly these features and better privacy options than gowalla and foursquare, never used grouptext though. it’s good for companies to focus and move on. but probably i won’t move along with them
