Nashville, Tenn. (Mar 28, 2012) – Goba announces today the release of version 2.7 of its mobile app, which includes integration with Facebook. With this integration, Goba users will be able to quickly get together with their Facebook friends in person. The Goba app is available for free in the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

 

Goba CEO, John Dayani, says, "Nearly one in seven people on this planet are on Facebook. We love what Facebook has done in terms of connecting the whole planet, but what they provide is deceivingly isolating despite people having large numbers of Facebook friends. We believe relationships grow in person and are excited that our latest version can make it even easier to get together in the real world."

 

With this new release, app users can now include their Facebook friends in their groups and events without sacrificing privacy. Unlike Facebook Events, which tend to be overlooked or often ignored, Goba’s app is a more personal and less noisy approach.

 

Event and group organizers using Goba are rewarded with easy-to-use tools to check on RSVPs as well as message and remind those interested in participating. Users can also discover local events, groups and destinations, thanks to the previous Foursquare integration, and easily spread the word by inviting their friends to join them. People are using the Goba app for everything from informal get-togethers for dinner to organizing parties and events. Goba continues to be a leader on the privacy front by providing clear options for private or invite-only groups and events.

 

In addition, Goba is now including this Facebook integration capability along with its other core engines into an offering called GobaEngage™ that businesses and developers can build into their mobile apps.

 

The Goba app is available for free in the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Download the Goba app:

Goba iPhone and Goba Android.
