NBC News' long-running newsmagazine Dateline is getting into the social media game. NBC News is launching Dateline Chatline, an interactive online platform that will bring viewers, the show's producers, correspondents and its anchor, Lester Holt, all together in one place to comment or ask questions about topics and stories from the show. The Dateline Chatline web app is accessible on any browser across all digital platforms. Users can post comments or questions via Facebook, Twitter, GetGlue or the show's website, DatelineNBC.com, and the app will synchronize all of the conversations into one area on the site. Dateline's broadcasts will also present questions for the audience to add feedback on via Chatline.
