For fans of George Takei's hilarious, thought-provoking Facebook page may be disheartened to learn that it's actually ghostwritten. Is nothing sacred?!

Takei

Journalist Rick Polito recently revealed that he'd been jokes for Takei's feed at $10 each. It was just a quick aside, but it stunned Takei's fans nonetheless.

Wired got in touch with Takei, who was taken aback at the uproar.

"What is this hoo-ha about my FB posts?" Takei said in response.

Facebook has changed our lives, and not just because it's helped Kim Kardashian stay in the news.

The website enables users to update friends on their new babies, their latest vacations of whatever meal they just cooked for dinner.

We can stalk our exes, we can investigate potential love interests, we can pretend as if we can easily live without this social media apparatus... but we know we'd be lying.

This addiction is covered in Facebook: The Musical, an impressively produced video that has already garnerned hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube. Watch it here.

The Facebook page of an Arizona bakery became a national story after the owners of Amy's Baking Company were featured on Gordon Ramsay's FOX show.

But the insane-seeming duo now says they had nothing to do with the EPIC rants that followed their Kitchen Nightmares appearance, which was ridiculed online.

Instead, they're playing the "hacking" card.

Amy's Baking Company

The couple’s behavior on the show was beyond bad - it was even too much for Ramsay, who walked out before renovations in the May 10 episode.

The Scottsdale, Ariz., establishment was accused of stealing tips from employees, selling desserts from elsewhere and being rude to customers.

On last week's episode of Fox's Kitchen Nightmares, loudmouth UK chef Gordon Ramsay paid a visit to Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo were apparently such a “nightmare” to work with that Ramsay canned them. Customers aren’t exactly fond of Amy’s either.

Samy and Amy Bouzaglo

Yelp reviews call the restaurant itself “horrible” and accuse the owners of stealing waitresses’ tips ... and of being tyrannical nut jobs on social media.

Not even Ramsay could convince the stubborn owner to change her behavior, which only became more evident after their exploits aired on Fox.

The show caught the attention of Reddit, whose users slammed the restaurant's Facebook page with comments, triggering an epic social media meltdown.

Vin Diesel says Facebook, upon which he has 41 million Likes, owes him "billions of dollars" for helping spark the social network's popularity.

It's hard to tell if he's half serious.

“What Facebook didn’t realize is something very big was about to happen," he tells EW.

"For the first time in history, and it’s kind of a fluke they didn’t see this coming - when I jumped on that page in April 2009, I started talking to people. In the realest ways."

A Washington man has been charged with bigamy after Facebook revealed he was married to two different women, unbeknownst to either of them.

Guess someone needs to up his privacy settings.

Alan O'Neill, a 41-year-old state corrections officer, married a woman in 2001, separated from her eight years later, changed his name and remarried.

FB Screen Cap

The two wives revealed O’Neill’s deception when - you guessed it - they both noticed the other one as a “friend” on their husband’s Facebook profile.

"Wife No. 1 went to wife No. 2's page and saw a picture of her and her husband with a wedding cake," Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said.

O’Neill’s first wife then called and confronted the mother of wife No. 2.
