Facebook has acquired most of drop.io's technology and assets, and Sam Lessin is moving to Facebook.

"In coming weeks, we'll be winding down the drop.io service. As of this week, people will no longer be able to create new free drops, but you'll be able to download content from existing drops until Dec. 15. Paid user accounts will still be available through Dec. 15 and paid users will be able to continue using the service normally. After Dec. 15, paid accounts will be discontinued as well.

Please download your information before Dec. 15 -- we plan to delete it after that time. No user data or content will be transferred to Facebook, and we'll send out e-mails to everyone to remind them about the service closing," said drop.io.

Other drop.io services like Presslift, our Yahoo! Mail Application, and our APIs will stay online for a longer period before the company winds down.
