Facebook Ecstatic to Have Gowalla User Data

It's confirmed! Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg just confirmed the acquisition of Gowalla.  Facebook tweeted, “We've acquired Gowalla. I'm ecstatic and can't wait to have access to thousands of users' location data.”image  I am not a Gowalla user, in fact I have no idea what Gowalla was until I just googled it, but knowing that Facebook just settled a privacy lawsuit their comment by their CEO makes me wonder if they are really concerned about protecting our privacy or is our information simply a money making tool for them.

Why so ecstatic Mark?
