Facebook has acquired nextstop, a travel recommendation start-up. will be shutting down on September 1, 2010. The company shared that its current members are being offered a number of tools for exporting their travel guides. It added that Facebook has bought most of its assets.


In the next few weeks, the company will be releasing the nextstop database of places and recommendations under a Creative Commons license in a format suitable for easy importing. stated, “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.”


“Our aim is make it possible for other products -- whether they already exist or are yet to be created -- to harness the collective knowledge of the nextstop community, which includes information on nearly 100,000 recommendations for places around the world.”
