Political Fury is a Facebook game revolving around current political media circulating the web, along with user-generated political content. Facebook users can play the game by joining the Political Fury group and allowing the application. As players, they begin by choosing a party: Republican or Democrat. They start as the lowest of the three ranks, Concerned Citizen. As they interact with other players about political topics in the Political Fury group, they earn Political Fury points that will help them advance through the next two ranks, Political Advocate and Campaign Manager. Higher ranks allow more privileges that will advance their ability to voice their political opinions. In addition to each player’s individual points, an overall point system is kept among the three different parties based on how many Political Fury points each party’s members are acquiring, and it is always displayed on the Political Fury group page in real time. It’s up to the political fury of Facebook users to determine which political party will prevail!<br />Political Fury: Abstract<br />
