Fans can log into and immediately connect to the Facebook, Twitter, Ustream and Youtube channels!

In fact, on Tuesday, October 26th, join Days' Crystal Chappell (Carly) for an interactive chat on the new site.

DOOL Executive in Charge of Production and co-author of 45 YEARS: A CELEBRATION IN PHOTOS, Greg Meng, commented on the move into social media, "'Days' has an incredibly loyal fan base, and our fans have been asking for more interactive opportunities and exclusive content aside from what we already give them. 'Days' fans want to know about the cast and the characters, and social media provides the means that fans can actually communicate with their favorite cast members in real time, and that is really exciting for them. Social media provides a two-way street for communication rather than a one-sided one."

In addition to their new social media hub, you can look forward to a variety of upcoming applications, scheduled video chats, downloads, contests, and giveaways. Visit daily to see updates and schedules.
