The veteran actor is a keen web user, regularly updating his Twitter.com page and he even founded his own networking site, MyOuterSpace.com, for sci-fi fans.
But he had issues with cyberspace on Monday (18Jul11) after trying to use Google's new social networking forum, Goggle+, when his profile was allegedly deleted for "violating standards".
On his Twitter.com page, Shatner told his 646,327 followers, "My Google+ account was flagged for violating standards. Saying hello to everyone apparently is against the rules maybe I should say goodbye?"
However, bosses at Google+ obviously saw the tweet, and reinstated the profile with immediate effect. He writes on his + profile, "I am back plusers. I still do not know what happened but I will refrain from saying hello again for a while just in case. My best, Bill."
The 78 year old has set up MyOuterSpace.com, which helps "aspiring filmmakers, design and game artists" who are fans of sci-fi, horror and fantasy to gain experience of the movie industry.
Users choose a "planet" best suited to their talents and can then get the chance to work with a virtual production company on film projects, known on the site as Starships.
In a mission statement Shatner writes, "Register on the planet that hosts your talent, fill out a profile and connect with others in your field. Submit your resume for a Starship project that needs your talents. Whether you are an actor, writer, animator or gamer MyOuterSpace.com has a home for you.
"I will be monitoring all Starship projects, and reviewing each Captain's Log, where progress will be recorded each step of the way."
