In January we reported that social web browser Flock had been acquired by social gaming giant Zynga.
Flock was founded in 2005 and is based in Redwood City, CA, but had an office in Victoria, BC where half of it's 40 engineers were located. At the time we wondered aloud whether 'Flock North' would still call BC's capital home after the "manquisition" and whether the Flock product would be shelved entirely.
We found out the fate of the product today with this announcement on their site:
Support for Flock browsers will be discontinued as of April 26th, 2011. We would like to thank our loyal users around the world for their support, and we encourage the Flock community to migrate in the coming weeks to one of the recommended web browsers listed below.
No word yet on whether Zynga will be leaving Victoria behind as well.
