Los Angeles-based Yfly.com said Thursday that it has launched a new service focused on social networking for 13-27 year olds, which also caters to celebrities looking to reach out to fans. The site, which said that it counts Nick Lachey as a co-founder, said it will act as a platform for celebrities to update their fans. Yfly.com said it will certify each celebrity through a verification process, to ensure there are not fake profiles.
