(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- I am pretty sure if you are on the internet it pretty much guarantees that you have either Facebook'ed or Tweeted. If you are anything like me then you have probably already done both! Well, if you are like Alison Sweeney, then you are ahead of the rest of us. Sweeney, who portrays Samantha 'Sami' Brady on "Days of Our Lives" and also hosts "The Biggest Loser," has jumped on board with a brand new social network media website called "Tout."Tout is a new video social media platform whose mobile app enables iPhone and iPad users to shoot 15-second real-time video messages (or “touts”), which they can simply and instantly share on Twitter, Facebook, via email and/or SMS in one click.

"One Life to Live" star Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) had many fans in attendance at last weekends "One Life to Live" Fan Club Weekend Luncheon scratching their heads when she said "I was told by our executive producer [Frank Valentini] yesterday, that on Wednesday [August 10] we tied with 'Y&R.'"

Just weeks before the Prospect Park deal to pick up the production and distribution rights of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" from the Disney/ABC Television group was announced, ABC revealed that they had decided to move "One Life" head writer Ron Carlivati to "General Hospital" as a script writer once production wrapped on the soap in November. Is that still the case two months later?
As previously reported, the cast of "All My Children" have received offers from Prospect Park to return to the series upon re-launch in January 2012, nearly four months after the series completes its ABC run. According to Deadline Hollywood's Nellie Andreeva, Prospect Park is offering Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) virtually the same salary she's currently receiving from ABC.
On Monday, September 26, "Days of our Lives" introduces a new era of drama when new co-head writers Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas take over. On that day, citizens of Salem gather together for the launch of the new Horton Town Square that will house restaurants, boutiques and an even a book store.
"All My Children's" Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery) was on today's edition of WGN Chicago's "Midday Fix" and while the actor was there to promote his stand-up act and meet and greets while he was in town, one topic that was up for discussion happened to be about Prospect Park and what its plans are with "AMC" and in particular the actors.
