  2. for verified accounts I’d suggest checking out http://www.ibrity.com . they only post verified accounts and they provide links of the celebrity’s facebook, myspace and even youtube channel as well.. plus it’s divided per country. so if you’re looking for an uk celebrity you won’t be bothered by the american ones lol!
