Limbo and Brightkite announced that the two companies are merging to form the largest location-based social discovery service. The combined entity will have more than two million unique monthly users, award-winning products, strong advertising revenues and a highly experienced executive team. The company, which will use the Brightkite brand, will focus on its combined service that helps friends increase face time and share real world experiences.
The new Brightkite has partner and distribution relationships with Facebook, Apple and more than 25 mobile operators in North America and hundreds across the globe. Full, seamless product integration is expected to happen within weeks and, until then, users will continue to user Limbo and Brightkite as they have in the past.
