Josh Williams, co-founder of the location-based check-in startup Gowalla which was acquired by Facebook in 2012, plans to soon leave the social giant according to sources familiar with the situation. Williams hasn’t announced his next moves (or his departure, for that matter), but sources said he plans to stay in San Francisco and work on starting a new company. Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Incidentally, Tim Van Damme, another former Gowalla employee who joined Instagram before Facebook acquired the photo-sharing service, is also leaving the company. The departures are not related, according to sources.
