Facebook will unveil its entry into the location-based social networking space someday and today's acquisition of innovative trip-sharing service NextStop will undoubtedly influence what Facebook users eventually get to see.
NextStop was founded by a team of ex-Googlers and best-known for an HTML5 mobile web site that makes innovative use of location and Creative Commons media posted online about places. Check out the screenshots below of the mobile app, now set to be shut down as the company transitions into becoming a part of the Facebook development team.
