Google to shut down Bump and Flock in just 30 days

Bump and Flock to be shutdown by Google on January 31st (NASDAQ:GOOG)

| Apps News | Posted: Jan 2, 2014 2:00 am

In true Google form, its recently acquired Bump and Flock apps will be shutdown effective January 31st 2014. Google acquired Bump and Flock in September and only seemed interested in its talented employees, and not necessarily the apps themselves.

The shutdown announcement came late last night via the company's CEO and founder, David Lieb, who quietly broke the news via blog post last night. Google says that users can export their data by simply using the app and following the export instructions provided. This saddens me asbump is one of the apps that I used most often to trade contact info with colleagues and friends.
