Brightkite Removes Check-In Feature

Posted Dec 10, 2010

Brightkite was one of the first companies to work on a geo-location service. Now they are removing this service from their application in order to focus on the group texting service. Brightkite was acquired by a company called Limbo in April 2009 and the company co-founders, Martin May and Brady Becker, left to start a new company called Forkly. [TechCrunch]
