Social media can be a great way for soap stars to stay in touch with their fans by sharing what they’ve been up to in both their personal and professional lives.

“Your support does not go unnoticed,” the actress assured her followers. Kelly Monaco may not be as enamored of social media as some of her soap-star peers, especially not since October of 2020, when online bullying inspired her to stand up to the jerks “who have hate in their heart, [enough] to comment and say such negative [bleep] on my page” (in a since-whittled-down Instagram post).
Social media can be a great way for celebrities to stay in touch with their fans, and while she may not use it as much as some of her GENERAL HOSPITAL co-stars, Kelly Monaco (Sam) took a moment to let her supporters know just how much they are appreciated. “Hello my dreamy Sam fans,” she tweeted. “I have been reading through a lot of the posts here. And I want all of you to know that I do read each and every one of them. I may not answer… obviously. But your support does not go unnoticed.” She also included the hashtag “#BestFansEver.”
