Facebook Hires Carsabi Co-Founders; Site For Sale

Used-car price-comparison site Carsabi is for sale. If you are wondering what this has to do with Facebook, the social network is the reason why the site is for sale: Co-Founders Dwight Crow and Christopher Berner are joining Facebook, which had no use for Carsabi.

There was no word on what roles Crow and Berner would fill, but TechCrunch speculated that they might be a good fit to work on the new Facebook Gifts offering.

Crow and Berner said in a blog post on Carsabi:

We created Carsabi back in October 2011 with the goal of easing the process of purchasing a used car and providing a service that aims to index every automotive vehicle and connect more users to their car of choice each day.

But now it’s time for us to take a different turn. We want to take this impact to the next level and help Facebook users connect and share. Because Facebook is not acquiring Carsabi.com, we’re looking for someone to buy the Carsabi service so the two of us can focus on our new jobs. We can’t thank all of you who have used Carsabi enough — developing Carsabi has been an incredibly rewarding experience, and we hope we helped you think differently about how to find the perfect used car!

We want to give special thanks to our partners, customers, and investors for helping us fulfill our dream.
