MyLife.com Buys CitizenLocal.com
Los Angeles-based MyLife.com, the people search service run by Jeffrey Tinsley, said today that it has acquired CitizenLocal.com, a local deals site. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. MyLife said the buy will allow businesses and merchants to promote their offerings to its 50 million registered members. MyLife said it hopes the buy will help lawyers, accountants, plumbers, contractors, and other service providers using its site to generate new clients. CitizenLocal was created by Irvine-based Dealometer, Inc. MyLife did not say if it only acquired the CitizenLocal.com service, or all of Dealometer.
