Who is Really Who on those Social Websites?

I found a good website via the Charlotte Observer yesterday. This site, called Valebrity, verifies whether or not that celebrity's Twitter, Myspace, Facebook or Bebo page really belongs to who claims it. There are a few fake celebrity accounts out there so Valebrity offers a unique service. The only celebrities I follow on Twitter are a couple of writers and funny ladies, Paula Poundstone and Joan Rivers and funny man, John Cleese. I may drop Joan Rivers, mostly what she does is pimp her QVC appearances. If you just have to follow one celebrity on Twitter may I recommend Paula Poundstone? Her tweets are pretty clever.

I was pleased to see that all of the famous people I have followed on Twitter have turned up to be real. I was pretty confident of that anyway because I had verified these were real accounts by visiting the webpages of each person I followed. It seems that is pretty much what this website does.

I liked what you had to say about Paula Poundstone. You were right on -- and I should know - I'm her manager.
Where are you located - maybe I can arrange tickets for you the next time she is in your area.
Her status updates on Facebook are funny, too. So is her CD:
Also on itunes and Amazon

Here's a funny film she just did:
Anything you can do to help spread the word -- in Canada! - much appreciated!

PS, did you know that Paula is the National Spokesperson for the new organization that combines ALA and FOLUSA?
